Wangari Maathai, a true Kenyan hero, passed away last night in Nairobi after a battle with cancer. A Nobel laureate, Wangari was a tireless warrior for conservation, women’s rights and inspired an entire country to take action. I had the pleasure of hearing Wangari speak in Chicago in 2009 and the honor of shaking her hand that night. Wangari will certainly be missed but I have no doubt that her legacy will live on.
she is so pretty how old was she and are their any books about her what happened to her I will keep her in my prayers Love and God Bless Auntie Mimi x0x0x
Hi Auntie Mimi! Wangari was 71 and died of cancer. She has a couple of books, my favorite is her autobiography called “Unbowed”
