The 2018 Five Rivers Peacebuilder experience (PbX) was held on Sunday, Sept. 16, 1-5pm at the Dayton Metro Library. More than 300 seats were reserved for the Main Session featuring Paul Chappell and the performance of Kim Belew and Angell Peace. Ten engaging Break Out Sessions followed including a reading of “Mother Courage and Her Children” by Dr. Stuart McDowell and a cast of faculty and friends of Wright State University. The Women Are Human project of 21st Century Peace Literacy Foundation was also launched featuring “Les femmes sont humaines,” a painting by Patsy Ferrell that embeds the stories of six women Human Equality Pioneers.
