Kofi Annan - Interventions @ Sixth & I Synagogue

Sep 5 2012 7:00 pm
Sep 5 2012 7:59 pm

From an entry-level professional position as a WHO budget officer in 1962 to two terms as the Secretary General, Annan has been associated with the United Nations for some forty years. His memoir, co-written with Nader Mousavizadeh, CEO of Oxford Analytica, is as much a personal biography, tracing Annan’s upbringing in Ghana, his role in his country’s revolution, his education in Africa, Europe, and the U.S, as it is a history of the institution to which he has devoted his life. Annan will be in conversation with novelist and journalist David Ignatius.
