Googling for Darfur

Added on by Sam Davidson.

In hopes of raising awareness about the reality of genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan, Sam writes every Monday about a key issue in an attempt to stop the atrocity. Doing so may not bring about a wave of change, but it is a small ripple that represents the tide that needs turning.

Folks often ask how I get all of my Darfur info, given that most American news outlets give it little to no airtime or column space.

I Google.

Signing up for Google News alerts is an idea I highly recommend. By entering a keyword, you can have emails sent to you whenever that word comes over the wire. I get about 10 or so Darfur emails a day because I want the news as it breaks. I've also signed up to get Sudan and Africa alerts once a day.

Stay smart.
