John Prendergast is co-founder of the Enough Project, an initiative to end genocide and crimes against humanity. During the Clinton administration, Prendergast was involved in a number of peace processes in Africa while he was director of African Affairs at the National Security Council and special advisor at the Department of State. Prendergast  has also worked for members of Congress, the United Nations, humanitarian aid agencies, human rights organizations, and think tanks, as well as having been a youth counselor and basketball coach.

He has authored eight books on Africa, including Not on Our Watch, a New York Times bestseller and NAACP non-fiction book of the year that he co-authored with actor Don Cheadle. Prendergast  is currently working on two new books for publication by Random House, one that focuses on his 25 years in the Big Brother program, and the other on human rights and peace activism.

Prendergast  travels regularly to Africa's war zones on fact-finding missions, peace-making initiatives, and awareness-raising trips. He is part of a fellowship program at St. Mary's College in Maryland, a visiting professor at Eckerd College and the American University in Cairo, and the Joan B.
