Learn all about recent events in sub-Saharan Africa, from the coup in Mali to the effects of both coronavirus and climate change. This talk will feature Amb. Johnnie Carson in an interview with Amb. Vicki Huddleston. What is the current state of terrorism and terror groups on the continent? What are the effects of ongoing population growth and disaffected young adults often unable to find work? Given the continent’s extraordinary challenges, what are some positive recent trends?
Amb. Johnnie Carson was sworn in as assistant Secretary of State for African affairs in May, 2009. Prior to this he was the national intelligence officer for Africa at the National Intelligence Council, after serving as the senior vice president of the National Defense University in Washington, D.C.
