2018 Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Keynote Speaker: Michele Norris



Michele Norris, eminent American broadcast journalist, became the first African-American female host in the history of National Public Radio, serving as anchor of its flagship evening news program All Things Considered from 2002 to 2015.

Previously, she served as an ABC News correspondent, winning both the Emmy and Peabody awards for her coverage of the 9/11 attacks. In 2014, she received a second Peabody for her NPR Race Card Project, which invites listeners to comment on matters of race in exactly six words. She is also the author of the memoir, The Grace of Silence (2010), which Toni Morrison called, "an insightful, elegant rendering of how the history of an American family illuminates the history of our country." There will be a reception with light refreshments in the Patroon Room from 5:30-6:45 p.m. before the program begins


Sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Student Association, and University Auxiliary Services in collaboration with the Writers Institute

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
