Wangari Maathai: Independence — Kenya’s and My Own
In the wake of the death of 2004 Nobel Peace Prize recipient Wangari Maathai, we present an excerpt from her autobiography, “Unbowed.” Her trailblazing story illustrates how African women are stepping into prominent leadership roles throughout the continent.
César Chelala explains how the legacy of the late Nobel Prize-winning environmentalist Wangari Maathai lives on in the thousands of women around the world who are actively engaging in environmental issues.
César Chelala recounts a historic moment in U.S.-Cuba relations when President Kennedy, a cigar aficionado, almost broke his country’s embargo against the Caribbean island.
