open dialogue with Amb. Samantha Power. Samantha Power is a Professor
of Practice at the Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Law School. From
2013-2017, Power served as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations
and as a member of President Obama's cabinet. From 2009-2013, Power
served on the National Security Council as Special Assistant to the
President for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights. Power began her
career as a journalist, reporting from places such as Bosnia, East
Timor, Kosovo, Rwanda, Sudan, and Zimbabwe, and she was the founding
executive director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the
Kennedy School. Power's book, "A Problem from Hell": America and the
Age of Genocide won the Pulitzer Prize in 2003. She is also the author
of the New York Times bestsellers Chasing the Flame: One Man's Fight
to Save the World (2008) and The Education of an Idealist: A Memoir
(2019), which was named one of the best books of 2019 by the New York
Times, Washington Post, Economist, NPR, and TIME. Power earned a B.A.
from Yale University and a J.D. from Harvard Law School. The event
will be loosely based on her new book. However, most of the time will
be reserved for questions from the audience. Amb. Power will sign
books immediately following the event.
