Book Talk: The History of The USA in Eritrea

December 10, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Join a virtual discussion about the newly released by “The History of The USA in Eritrea: From Franklin D Roosevelt To Barack Obama And How Donald Trump Changed The Course Of History” with author Amanuel Biedemariam moderated by IPS Events Coordinator and Pan-Africanist organizer Netfa Freeman.

The History of The USA in Eritrea discusses what led to US involvement in Eritrea after World War II. In length, it details, the why, the how, the people behind the moves, and what motivated US actions in Eritrea. It explores what happened in Eritrea at the beginning of the Cold War, during the end of the European Colonial era in Africa, and discusses the role of the US in post-WWII Africa. It examines the legacy and the impact of US foreign policy after the Cold War how the Clinton administration shaped the US approach, the results, and how it impacted the US’s global standing on its competition against foreign adversaries especially China today. It unveils US history in Eritrea from various vantage points. This is a subject matter very little written about. It is written by someone who grew up feeling the repercussions of US actions in the region.

Netfa and Amanuel will also address the recent conflict in Ethiopia and what it means for the Horn of Africa and geopolitics of the region.

A Question & Answer opportunity will be given to attendees.
