"Nigeria and South Africa: Two Faces of African Democracy"

John-Campbell-Photo.jpg
Aired on Friday, April 15th.

On this installment of ST, we hear from a career foreign service officer about the two largest democracies in Africa, each dealing with conflicts that will continue to have consequences for the U.S. Our guest is Ambassador John Campbell, the Ralph Bunche Senior Fellow for Africa Policy Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. (Previously, from 1975 to 2007, Ambassador Campbell served as a U.S. Department of State Foreign Service officer, serving twice in Nigeria.) Ambassador Campbell recently gave an address to the Tulsa Committee on Foreign Relations entitled "Nigeria and South Africa: Two Faces of African Democracy," and he expands on his remarks for us today. The second edition of Campbell's book, "Nigeria: Dancing on the Brink," appeared in 2013, and his newest book, "Morning in South Africa," is due out in May. You can learn more about his appearance in Tulsa at this link.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly.
