(Boston, Mass.) — Her Excellency Ruth Sando Perry, former interim president of the Republic of Liberia, will give a public lecture on “The Role of the International Community in Rebuilding Liberia,” on Thursday, March 4, 2003, at Boston University.

A public reception, hosted by the University’s African Presidential Archives and Research Center (APARC), will follow the lecture by Mme. Perry, who was appointed in January as the new Balfour African President-in-Residence at APARC. Please RSVP to 617-353-5452 or atkabwe@bu.edu.

After seven years of civil war in Liberia, Mme. Perry was elected in 1997 to head a transitional government following President Samuel Doe’s assassination, serving until the 1997 election of Charles Taylor, who was exiled last year as Liberia was placed under a United Nations peacekeeping mandate.
