President-elect Biden's selection of Ambassador Linda Thomas Greenfield to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations sends a strong message about re-engaging with the world and ensuring that America acts in line with its core values, writes former U.S. Ambassador Robin Renee Sanders, who says the nominee will help build partnerships with Africa. Thomas Greenfield is the first African American female career foreign service officer to be nominated for a Cabinet post.
