Whats in a name? Hollywood producer Doug Claybourne and playwright L.D. Napier asked themselves this question when President Bush named the situation in Darfur genocide in 2005. I grew up learning about the Holocaust and wondering what I would have done had I been there. How could people have stood by? asks Napier. Then Rwanda happened. Bosnia happened. And I did nothing. Now, he and Claybourne are doing something: Theyve organized Four Days for Darfur, a benefit for Darfur Peace and Development, the Genocide Intervention Network, and Oxfam, which includes last nights fancy-schmancy gala and a three-day run of Napiers new play, The G-Word: For Those Born Later, in which the author covers the history of the word genocide, interspersed with true stories from Darfur.
