Shirley Temple Black

Category: Rated G

This story is by Harry Farkas.


Shirley Temple Black is back in the public eye with a new biographical movie on television. There is a little-known story the movie won’t be covering.

In 1974 Shirley Temple Black was appointed U.S. Ambassador to Ghana. To celebrate, gala parties were planned at both the Swiss and British embassies. Ambassador Black’s assistants made plans for her to attend both fetes, but the Ambassador made it clear she wanted no part of a two ball legation.


Chris Cole indicated that surely the Ambassador’s announcement was greated with a pregnant silence.
