Ethiopia’s First Lady receives award

Georgetown University: “Today, Georgetown University announced that it will award the fifth annual “John Thompson Legacy of a Dream Award” to the Organization of African First Ladies Against HIV/AIDS for its leadership and service toward the ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The First Lady of Zambia Mrs. Maureen Mwanawasa, the First Lady of Rwanda Mrs. Jeannette Kagame, and the First Lady of Ethiopia Mrs. Azeb Mesfin will receive the award on behalf of the organization, and their work will be honored during the annual “Let Freedom Ring” Concert to be held at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on Monday, January 15, 2006 at 6:00 p.m.”

Note: The year there is a typo. They meant to write Jan 15, 2007.

OH, well …I have no idea what kind of work she has done, but a humanitarian award “during the annual ‘Let Freedom Ring’ ” theme seemed to be a little inapporpriate.

I wish they listed the kind of work that she had done.  But putting her in the same league as Rosa Parks? That is quite a stretch.
