Frazer speaks at University Lecture Series: "In Africa’s Hands"
Jendayi Frazer was first captivated by sub-Saharan Africa through literature. Her oldest sister introduced her to the works of African authors Chinua Achebe and Wole Soyinka in high school, which set in motion a professional career focused on the continent. In her Journeys lecture, which also reflects the title of Frazer’s forthcoming book about her government service during the George W. Bush Administration, Frazer will describe the experiences on the continent that have shaped her foreign policy philosophy of embracing African expertise and elevating African leaders to address problems on the continent.
