Betting on the Africans

Oxford University Press

Chapter five looks at Kennedy’s relations with Tanganyika’s moderate leader, Julius K. Nyerere, with particular emphasis on their discussions of the racial problems of southern Africa. The chapter analyzes the impact of the Kennedy administration’s vote against Portuguese colonialism in the United Nations (the first time an American government had voted against a NATO ally on colonial issues), a vote that was designed to eradicate the stigma that accompanied traditional US support (real or perceived) for European colonialism.

Keywords:   Kennedy, Nyerere, Tanganyika, Portugal, United Nations, self-determination, South Africa
