Up close and personal, this book takes a look at African leaders who ignited independence in Black Africa during the 1960s through the eyes of two American forerunners who knew them well. Thomas Melady, a legendary diplomat, went with his wife Margaret to Africa as a young man to serve others and found himself involved with leaders who would change the face of the continent. Everyone interested in the history, politics, and religion of this great continent will enjoy their journeys.
Amb. Melady is an authority on Sub-Saharan Africa and Balkan Affairs and earned his Ph.D. from The Catholic University of America. Margaret Melady is currently President of Melady Associates, a firm specializing in public affairs and educational counseling.
