Ambassador Princeton Lyman passed away last week at the age of 82. He was a widely respected Africa policy expert who served as the United States ambassador to South Africa during the critical period that saw the end of apartheid and the election of Nelson Mandela. More recently, he served as President Obama’s special envoy for South Sudan.
In January 2017, he came on the podcast to discuss his remarkable life and career, which included being born in San Francisco to a poor immigrant family and rising to the heights of American foreign policy.
Listen back to that interview to learn from one of America’s finest diplomats and peacemakers.
