We still need support for our Tunisia Project, asl a viable project especially now with Biden as President.
We began planning The Tunisia Project with Hannibal Alliance which grew out of The Arab Spring.
We were fortunate to contact Behjeddine Akkari in Tunis. We have stayed in touch in the years since and have learned more about the Peace efforts of Hannibal Alliance and the Nobel winning Quartet of Four who won the Peace Prize.
By so doing, our major effort to contact colleagues here and there. Some plans included a showing of Award winning film JE SUIS TUNISIEN. It is a parable when Europeans want to move en-masse to Tunisia for their survival. It has won some Film Festival Awards in Europe and would be timely for us as well in the USA.
Olive Oil from Tunisia also recently won a Gold Medal at an International Food Festival. My first cultural encounter with Tunisia was a show from Tunisia of Roman mosaic’s at the Kennedy Center. They were thrilling objects as a gift from Tunisia that honored our Bicentennial in 1976.
Tunisia, it must be noted, was the first country to sign a Treaty with the USA in 1779 recognizing American independence.The recession waylaid our plans but we have maintained our connection with Tunisian colleagues in Tunis since 2011.
