Patrice Lumumba was the first legally elected Prime Minister of the Republic of the Congo
Lumumba's leadership would last only ten weeks, before he was deposed and murdered at the hands of the Belgian government, because of his intention to align his uranium rich nation with The Soviet Union.
The CIA has claimed they were uninvolved, though they are known to have been arranging a similar operation.

JFK And The Unspeakable
I've read at least a hundred books about the JFK presidency, his assassination, research into that event and related people. In my experience, this is the best book to date covering all of these topics.
The murder of Patrice Lumumba was accelerated to occur before JFK became president, because the CIA and the Belgian government (who actually carried off his assassination) knew that JFK was sympathetic to Lumumba and African nationalism as whole.
