U.S. President Barack Obama has invited “All but a few of the heads of state of the 54 nations of Africa” to join him on August 6, 2014, in Washington, D.C., the U.S. capital, for a U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit.

According to Stephen Hayes at U.S. News and World Report, “The purpose of the program is ostensibly to bring Africa and the United States closer together economically and politically. While it is a program also designed to strengthen the legacy of the Obama presidency, it is not without significant risks and challenges, for this summit will be like none the African leaders have ever experienced,” he writes in “Obama's High-Risk Africa Summit.
