At a time of upheaval and division, former US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power calls for a clearer eye, a kinder heart, and a more open and civil hand in our politics and daily lives. At this year's Noah Krieger '93 Memorial Lecture, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and current Harvard professor will speak on the searing battles and defining moments of her life, and show how she juggled the demands of a consuming national security job with the challenge of raising two young children. She will illuminate the intricacies of politics and geopolitics, reminding us how the United States can lead in the world, and why we each have the opportunity to advance the cause of human dignity.
The Noah Krieger ’93 Memorial Lecture was named for Noah Krieger, a Brown undergraduate who was interested in political science, public policy, and economics, who died shortly after graduating from Brown. The series, established by his parents, brings distinguished public servants to campus.
