6:00 PM Health and Peace-building in Africa Bringing their expertise and in-country experience in Africa, panelists Dr. Emily Bruno and Jane Wanjiru Kinyua will explore two-key, and frequently interrelated development challenges faced by African nations: promoting health and peace.

Dr. Bruno will discuss the case for global surgery as an essential element of global health. She will examine the collaborative process of creating a National Surgical Plan for Madagascar as a case study.

Ms. Kinyua will discuss the Children Peace Initiative Kenya that has been using the friendship-for-peace model to empower children to contribute to community peace-building. The model is based on the contact theory, through which children become protagonists of their community's peace and development. By opening doors for access to essential amenities like health facilities, enhanced trade and education, they have built bridges for their parents and communities, stimulating economic development and transforming conflict corridors into peace corridors.

7:30 PM Comedy: Rex Naverrete Navarrete gathers all of his material from what he calls "real Rex moments," reality and shared life experiences. "I think everything has humor; you will always find humor. I don't always make stuff up. Even though most of my material is geared for a Filipino audience, if you're smart enough you'll understand the universality of it. Look at the comedy traditions of Jewish and African American comics, which are now the mainstream through Seinfeld, Bruce, Allen, Rock, Pryor and Murphy. Our struggles become our comedy."

8:00 PM Music: Jose Feliciano Jose Feliciano is recognized as the first Latin Artist to cross over into the English music market, opening the doors for other artists who now play an important role in the American music industry. It is synonymous with a presence that has bridged musical styles in a way that has never been equaled

Three songs that have been milestones for Feliciano are: 1) "Light My Fire," which topped the charts globally in 1968. 2) "Che Sara," the 1971 San Remo Music Festival entry that became a mega-success. And 3) "Feliz Navidad," the Christmas song that has now become a tradition worldwide during the holiday season.
