The Journey Of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf 13

In 2005, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf became the first democratically elected female president in African history. Helene Cooper joins us to talk about the extraordinary life of the woman who’s led Liberia ever since, who she writes about in “Madame President: The Extraordinary Journey of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf” (Simon & Schuster). She speaks tonight at 6:30 to the World Affairs Council of Dallas-Fort Worth.
