Obama Announces Leadership Summit for Chicago

Former US President Barack Obama announced on September 13 an international summit that he said would bring together hundreds of community leaders from around the world. The summit was scheduled to take place in Chicago in October.

The summit would be based on research carried out by the Obama Foundation and would focus on “art, technology, and music.”
