Los Alamos-Japan Institute (LAJI) Global Conversations announces former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright in a conversation with Clifton Truman Daniel held virtually 2 p.m. March 23.
Daniel’s grandfather, President Harry S. Truman, authorized the use of nuclear weapons against Japan 75 years ago — and was President when 11-year-old Albright immigrated to the U.S. in the aftermath of WWII.
Secretary Albright is a professor in the Practice of Diplomacy at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service. She served as the first female and 64th United States Secretary of State.
In her July 24, 2020 editorial in the magazine Science, Secretary Albright said, “For the world to change course, the United States must restore its position as a supporter of negotiated disarmament and an architect of peace…75 years into the nuclear age, the United States must get off its current path and once again lead toward a nuclear weapons-free world.”
The Los Alamos-Japan Institute grows inclusive storytelling and builds global cultural bridges with a network of atomic bomb survivors, scientists, artists, educators, mayors and museums to further intercultural dialogue and collaboration.
LAJI Founder Dr. Judith Stauber will host the conservation, which is in honor of Women’s History Month. Visit https://laji.us/ to register and join the conversation.
