Chapter four recounts Kennedy’s arduous attempt to court Ghana’s mercurial leader Kwame Nkrumah, with a focus on the role that deliberations over whether or not to fund Ghana’s Volta River Project played in this process. While Kennedy was less successful in courting Nkrumah than Touré, the repeated challenges he overcame exemplify his steadfast commitment to African nationalism.

Keywords:   Kennedy, Nkrumah, Ghana, Volta River Project, Lumumba
