    A twenty-year veteran of The News Hour with Jim Lehrer and former Johannesburg Bureau Chief for CNN, Charlayne Hunter-Gault, a Special Africa Correspondent for NPR, has won two Emmys and two Peabody Awards for her journalism. She is the author of In My Place, a memoir of her role in the Civil Rights Movement as the first black woman admitted to the University of Georgia. In her new book, New News Out of Africa, Hunter-Gault offers a fresh and surprisingly optimistic assessment of modern Africa.
