The 2nd Julius Nyerere Intellectual Festival in Pictures

As I mentioned in this post, last week I was in Dar Es Salaam for the 2nd Julius Nyerere Intellectual Festival. I have never meet so many learned Africans in one gathering. It was truly a humbling experience.
I would say that the highlights of the events was the talk by Prof. Utsa Patnaik on ‘The Agrarian question in the Neo-Liberaral Era” She has written numerous books which can be found here.

This slideshow should give you a feel of how the event was.
