Alan Keyes

former US representative to UN

Alan Keyes was one of the U.S. representatives to the United Nations during the Ronald Reagan administration. In the 1990's he became one of the more well-known conservative African-Americans, thanks to his radio talk program, *The Alan Keyes Show*. His career as a political pundit on the TV and lecture circuit included a 2002 program on MSNBC, *Alan Keyes Making Sense*, but has been periodically interrupted by campaigns for elected positions. A Republican, Keyes ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in Maryland in 1988 and 1992, for the Senate in Illinois in 2004 (against Barack Obama), and for U.S. president in 1996 and 2000.
