Wangari Maathai Memorial Lecture

Dr. Jung Chang
A historian, author & an engaging speaker - this are just but a few words that describe Dr. Jung Chang as a remarkable figure across the globe. The chinese born british writer is an international best selling author for wild swan & Mao: the unknown story, an inspiring tale of how women survived every kind of hardship, deprivation & political upheavel imposed by Mao Zedong (a high ranking cadre) Her remarkable rise from unimaginable hardship to literary stardom made her a suitable candidate for the inaugural lecture honoring Kenya's great noble peace prize laureate & founder of the Green Belt Movement, the late Wangari Maathai


The Wangari Maathai memorial lecture took place at louis leakey auditorium at the Hay festival in Nairobi.It seeks to bring thinkers from around the world who share the late Nobel laureate's enthusiasm for change, courage & resiliance in the face of adversity.
The Kenyan social activist & environmental crusader was the first woman in Eastern & Central Africa to hold a PH.D & the first african woman to win the Noble Prize for Peace.She was also a political activist who suffered for her strong convictions through political persecution & sometimes physical abuse
The Late Prof. Wangari Maathai
Born 72 years ago, The world marks the first year anniversary of her death. Her legacy lives on & her vision is still being carried on at the Wangari maathai institute for peace & environmental community.An institute dedicated to excellence & transformational community outreach and research for sustainable environments & cultures for peace. May the Lord rest her soul in eternal peace....
