The extraordinary diplomatic career of the “little Elam girl” from Boston

Diversifying Diplomacy, the memoir of Harriet Elam-Thomas, is more than just a personal history, more than just a ‘her-story.’ It is the timely narrative of an African American woman weaned in black Boston on family pride and ambition, liberated through education, inspired by civil rights battles, and mentored to the top by fellow travelers and battle-scarred elders. Hers is a great American story. It is fact, not fiction. It’s real.”

—Milton Coleman, retired senior editor of the Washington Post
