Nobel laureate and former United Nations secretary-general, Kofi Annan '61, said last week the world is squandering the potential of African children by not giving them access to education. Annan, co-chair of the Books for Africa Law and Democracy Initiative alongside former U.S. Vice President Walter Mondale '50, was speaking during a reception to mark the 30th anniversary of Books for Africa, the St. Paul non-profit that ships millions of donated school textbooks to the continent.
