David joined a delegation to Libya sponsored by the Fellowship of Reconciliation — a listening project to meet Libyan people and bring back stories to help Americans see beyond mainstream news of "the enemy."
The group arrived at the airport in Tripoli six months after the U.S. had shot down two Libyan jet fighters off the coast of Libya and tensions between the countries were high. Delegation organizer Virginia Baron is in blue.
The group toured the ruins of Gaddafi's house, hit by U.S. bombs in April 1986.
Gaddafi erected a statue showing a hand crushing a model U.S. warplane in front of his house, which was bombed in a U.S. raid in 1986.
Huge portraits of Gaddafi were common, this one at the International Green Book Studies Center.
