Women’s History Month: More Inspiring ‘Firsts’ by Female African American Ambassadors

Share this Post

Last year for Women’s History Month, I compiled an article “Honoring the Many ‘Firsts’ of African American Female Ambassadors.”  The article included 14 female former ambassadors and was meant to be a work in progress to eventually include more of the approximately 55 African American women who have served in the capacity of U.S. ambassadors.  Encouraging comments such as those from former U.S. Ambassador to the African Union, Cindy Courville, confirmed the advisability of proceeding with this project.  Courville wrote, “You provided the readers with a rare insight into the contributions of those brave and inspiring African American women whose outstanding diplomatic service contributed to promoting American democracy and national security.”
