When I heard that the General Meeting of the Kenjin-Tatsujin Council was to be held in Washington DC, it brought to mind the Great March on Washington in 1963. When Martin Luther King made his famous “I have a dream” speech, how many people could have imagined that 50 years later the United States would really have an African-American president? From the perspective of those times it seems like a dream. This General Meeting is another historic starting point, and I can imagine that it will lead to African countries producing many talented people who will shape the futures of their nations. It is a tremendous honor to be able to take part in this historic inaugural General Meeting in Washington.
