Guest: Daniel Nielson, Ph. D., BYU Political Science Professor President Obama has just concluded his first trip to Africa while in office, including stops in Kenya and Ethiopia where he said, "The future of Africa is up to Africans, for too long many looked to the outside for salvation." He urged African leaders to create jobs, foster innovation and uphold the human rights ideals of democratic society. BYU Political Science Professor Dan Nielson argues that Africans, in many ways, are already taking charge of their destinies and that local success stories on the ground in Africa might surprise Westerners.
