Please join the Wilson Center Africa Program on Tuesday, January 26, 2021, from 10:00-11:00 AM (Eastern Time US) for the inaugural Congressman Howard Wolpe Conversation on Africa as we honor Congressmember Karen Bass, the U.S. Representative from California’s 37th Congressional District, for her years of leadership and advocacy for stronger U.S.-Africa relations. This event will also feature a “fireside chat” between Congressmember Bass and Congresswoman Jane Harman, the Director, President, and CEO of the Wilson Center, discussing the current state of U.S.-Africa relations and the road ahead for U.S.-Africa engagement in the Biden administration. The public event will be featured as a webcast available on the Wilson Center’s website.

Congressmember Bass has long been a leader and vocal advocate of stronger U.S.-Africa relations, and currently serves as the Chair of the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights and International Organizations. From 2018-2020, she served as the Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, which has been at the forefront of working to strengthen U.S.-Africa relations. This conversation will offer an opportunity honor the legacy of Congressman Howard Wolpe, celebrate the leadership and achievements of Congressmember Bass, and have an insightful discussion on recent milestones in U.S.-Africa relations, some of the key challenges facing the continent, and the future of Africa and U.S.-Africa relations as the U.S. transitions to a new administration.
