Media & Public Talks

Media Appearances

Since the publication of my book, I’ve been invited to speak with a number of outlets:

In April 2018 I appeared on radio shows in the US and South Africa to discuss protests in Ghana that ensued after an agreement between the US military and Ghanaian government was made public. Both appearances can be accessed here:
