Operation WALK Syracuse

For the first time ever at the New York State Fair, there will be a running event at the fairgrounds. The Bubble Blast 5K run will take place Sunday.

One of the beneficiaries of the fundraiser is a group of central New York medical professionals who take their skills to third-world countries.

Sub-Saharan Africa is a big waterfront to cover, about 50 countries, with great diversity, but this edition of the Campbell Conversations attempts to cover it.  Host Grant Reeher speaks with Hobart and William Smith political science professor Kevin Dunn, who has written numerous books on the region.  They explore recent trends, common misperceptions, American foreign policy, and the increasing influence of China.
