  •  I knew Alice Windom had lived in (8+ / 0-)

    Africa, but ran into her in a book by manning Marable last year (the one about Malcolm X).

    Just found this about her on the net:

     

    Working as a secondary school teacher and secretary to the Ethiopian Ambassador, Windom was a part of an historic group of diverse African American expatriates in Ghana which included John Henrik Clarke, Maya Angelou, Curtis “Kojo” Morrow and the elder W.E.B. DuBois. In 1964, Windom helped plan the itinerary for Malcolm X’s trip to Ghana and served as administrative assistant for the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa from 1964 to 1968, organizing international conferences in seven countries. From 1969 to 1972, Windom was a social welfare organizer for the Department of Social Welfare in Lusaka, Zambia.
    Bio of Alice Windom

    I learned a lot from her in conversations.  She's a good person.

    Join us on the Black Kos front porch to review news and views written from a black pov—everyone is welcome.
