Still In Service To His Country

Retired United States Ambassador and Chesapeake, Va., resident Bismarck Myrick is  on an orientation visit to South Africa, where he was the first African American Consul General in Durban before also serving as U.S. Consul General in Cape Town — all during the Nelson Mandela era.

He is now  Old Dominion University’s Ambassador in Residence and Lecturer of Political Science and History.

U.S. Embassy officials invited Ambassador Myrick to participate in the American Independence Day program in Durban held on June 28, 2018. Doing his visit, he reunited with friends, Dr. Albertina  Luthuli, daughter of Chief Albert Luthuli, former President of the African National Congress (ANC) and the first African to win the Nobel Peace Prize, and Ela Gandhi, granddaughter of the iconic Mahatma Gandhi.
