How We Began

sunu galI am writing this as one of the participants in this journey. It all began with the "Awakening of the Roots" 2004 trip to Senegal, West Africa. That is when a group of twelve friends, acquaintances, and strangers traveled to Senegal on a yet-to-be-discovered life-changing journey. Prior to making arrangements for this trip, we all knew Mamadou Diop, who was responsible for arranging the details of the trip to his homeland.
