You are invited to attend the “Meet the Author” event Tuesday, September 30, featuring one of our own, Dr. Allan Ward, professor emeritus of Speech Communication. The event will also feature one of our students, Trevor Collins, an East Scholar and E-commerce major.
Join us as Collins talks with Ward about his recent book Civil Rights Brothers: The Journey of Allan Ward and Albert Porter.
In the book, Ward focuses on his friendship with longtime friend and colleague Albert Porter and the impact of their work to fight prejudice and to build a more just and harmonious society — first in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas, and then across the nation and around the world.
Learn more about Civil Rights Brothers.
