The Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy is proud to present Dr. Andrew Friedman. In his talk, Dr. Friedman will look at diplomats from Africa who arrived in Washington, D.C., focusing on 1960, the year the capitol was recognized as the first black-majority U.S. city and seventeen African colonies won independence. He chronicles how decolonization remade the US capital’s social geography, and examines connections between the social history of decolonization and D.C.’s struggle for home rule. Dr. Friedman is Assistant Professor of History at Haverford College.
