The Ambassador Andrew Young Lecture Series features distinguished speakers whose work has impacted and advanced the agenda of issues affecting the continent of Africa and U.S. – Africa relations. Named in honor of the former Chairman of The Africa Society Board, the Series was launched in 2002 and has since rotated through several African embassies. Since its inception, the series has drawn over 4,000 participants and attendees and served as a platform from which to raise awareness about African issues that require attention, media coverage, and action. Lecture topics have included “Good Governance and Development in Africa,” “Africa is Hope: Struggle Against the HIV/AIDS Pandemic,” and “The Niall Mellon Township Initiative in South Africa.”
