An address by U.S. Ambassador Johnnie Carson, who has just returned to the United States following four years as Ambassador to Kenya. One of the Foreign Service’s most distinguished Africanists, Ambassador Carson has played a major role in assisting Kenya through a remarkably successful political transition. His address will focus on this transition – its meaning for Kenya and for Africa, and for American policy. Prior to his most recent Kenyan assignment, Ambassador Carson served as the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Africa. He has also served as Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Ambassador to Uganda, and Deputy Chief of Mission in Botswana. In the aftermath of the Cold War, Ambassador Carson re-established an American diplomatic mission in Mozambique. In the 1980’s, on leave from the Foreign Service, he served for over four years as Chief of Staff to the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa.
