Every now and then, we meet a host whose day job makes us say, “Wow.” And in the case of Priscilla Dames, we were not only wowed, but humbled by her commitment to her cause.
It seems the host of BlogTalkRadio’s Conflict Corner made a similar impression on her hometown paper.
In a story in the current edition of the South Florida Times, headlined “Miamian Teaches Reconciliation in Nigeria,” reporter Juliana Accioly writes:
“Nelson Mandela, the first South African president elected in a fully representative democratic election, once observed that ‘If you want to make peace with your enemy you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.’
“Those words resonate with Priscilla Dames, owner of Wingspan Seminars, a training and conflict resolution company— so much so that she was hired to lead a two-week rehabilitation program in Nigeria for former guerrilla fighters.”
The Times goes on to describe Priscilla’s work:
“The training Dames offered came under the country’s amnesty program aimed at restoring normalcy to the violence-wracked Niger Delta region. She leads a workshop for 128 former members of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta.
“The Indianapolis native has been living in Miami for the past 30 years. She organizes public and private forums for businesses, educational institutions and organizations.”
