This Child Will Be Great: Memoir of a Remarkable Life by Africa’s First Woman President

The rise to power of Africa’s first female president is the subject of this long-awaited memoir from President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. The year is 2005, and after 14 years of civil conflict, the Republic of Liberia has made its call for change manifest in the election of Johnson Sirleaf, the former Minister of Finance.

A fighter for peace, social justice, and political transparency throughout her prestigious career, she has been a beacon of hope for a nation torn asunder. In This Child Will be Great, we are given glimpses into Johnson Sirleaf’s early life—but the real focus is her consistent commitment to helping Liberia’s people recover in the wake of a bitter civil war.
