By the fall of 1951 events took an upward turn in Philippa's career. A glorious tour in Africa and Europe had been arranged from December through March and this promised to be a stellar experience for Philippa. Musical America was also planning to feature her on the cover of its December issue, thus uplifting again the spirit of Philippa. In the same year, Philippa received a letter from Rudolph Dunbar of London, who would later convince her to marry Ben Enwonwu, a Nigerian artist living in England. Philippa was attracted, at least intellectually, to the idea of marrying Ben Enwonwu but later on declined the proposal for many reasons, which she had written about a letter to her mother.

Keywords:   Africa, Europe, Ben Enwonwu, proposal, Rudolph Dunbar
