The American Dream
Over 300 guests attended the May 19 reception hosted by Kuwaiti Ambassador Salem Al-Sabah and his wife, Rima, to celebrate the

despite struggles with poverty and racism, highlights her friendships with
such luminaries as Muhammad Ali and Martin Luther King, Jr.“The book is more than a great read—it is a story of the history of America,
and Langhart Cohen’s story is a real testament to the American dream,“ Rima Al-Sabah said.
VIP’s at the reception included Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Federal
Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan, Secretary of Transportation
Norman Mineta, actress Lynda Carter and the guest of honor’s spouse,
former Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen, among others.
