Richard Bell

Chargé d’Affaires Richard Bell spoke about the great change in respect for civil rights in America over the past 60 years, which shows that progress is possible and that non-violence is effective.  He cited the quiet courage of Mary Hamilton and Rosa Parks.  This occurred during conversation with young Chadians following the Embassy’s February 28 screening of the movie “Driving Miss Daisy.” Participants asked questions about the American Civil Rights Movement and religious freedom in the United States. The screening was part of Post’s Black History Month activities.
