As AfroSolo’s Arts Festival celebrates its 17th year with the theme “United in Peace: Artists, Statesmen and Community,” we’re reminded that the arts have always been in the forefront as a medium to envision, promote and celebrate peace. As this San Francisco-based festival begins, a distinguished panel of artists will examine the variety of arts for peace relationships. 

This program was recorded in front of a live audience at the Commonwealth Club of California on July 29, 2010.
