From the campaign:
Pulitzer Prize winner Samantha Power, a senior policy adviser to U.S. Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign, will make a series of stops across South Carolina Thursday and Friday to talk about Obama’s plan to restore American leadership on the world stage and decrease the risk of terrorism by attacking global poverty and rebuilding international cooperation.
Power is a senior policy adviser on the Obama campaign and Harvard’s Anna Lindh Professor of Global Leadership and Public Policy. She won the Pulitzer for her book “A Problem from Hell”: America and the Age of Genocide, and she was the founding director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard University.
Power’s New Yorker article on the horrors in Darfur, Sudan, won the 2005 National Magazine Award for best reporting. In 2007, she became a foreign policy columnist at Time magazine. From 1993 to 1996, she covered the wars in the former Yugoslavia as a reporter for the U.S. News and World Report, the Boston Globe and The Economist.
Power will be the featured guest for a Foreign Policy Forum at the College of Charleston at noon on Friday at the Alumni Hall in Randolph Hall at 66 George Street.
