We’ll talk about how Guinea handled the crisis and what Chicago’s Guinean American community is doing with two brothers, Amadou Diallo, co-vice president of Guinean American Communities United Organization and Oumar Diallo, host of the internet radio program, Voice of African Youth on “Guineaview”. The show is geared towards the Guinean diaspora. (photo:
