A Conversation with African American Leaders of the Clinton Administration

25 years ago, President Clinton made the pledge that his administration would “look like America,” as he believed there was nothing more powerful than a diverse group of Americans working toward a common purpose. Join us on February 27 for a conversation that will highlight the accomplishments and contributions of four African American leaders in the Clinton Administration. Janis Kearney, who served as the first Presidential Diarist in presidential history; Terry Edmonds, who was the first African American White House speechwriter; Ben Johnson, who served as the Assistant to the President and Director of the White House Office on the President’s Initiative for One America; and Bob Nash, who served as Assistant to the President and Director of Presidential Personnel for the White House, will discuss their work in the Clinton administration.
