After more than three decades of successes, exile, prison and death threats, Johnson-Sirleaf returns to the Front Range to lecture on her often challenging life immersed in African government. Tonight, the Unique Lives Series rounds out its tenth year in Denver with the internationally recognized Iron Lady of Africa. Named one of Forbes magazines Most Influential Women, Johnson-Sirleaf is a testament to what can be overcome with vision, intelligence and heart.
Armed with the goal of presenting intelligent women to intelligent women, Unique Lives brings some of the most inspiring women of our time to town. Its like a smart girls night out, says media contact Janette Ramirez. Johnson-Sirleaf speaks at 7:30 p.m. at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Performing Arts Complex; tickets range from $47.75 to $115.
