Award-winning journalist and National Public Radio contributor Michele Norris will visit MSU Sept. 15 to speak about her best-selling memoir, "The Grace of Silence," one of the three selections in this year's One Book, One Community program.
This year’s OBOC program is coordinated in conjunction with MSU’s yearlong Project 60/50, which commemorates the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision and the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
“The Grace of Silence” explores Norris’ family's racial legacy and discusses how America talks about race. Norris speak about her memoir and the "Race Card" project and sign books at 7:30 p.m. at the Wharton Center for Performing Arts as part of the World View Lecture Series.
The World View Lecture Series is made possible in part by the MSU Office of the President. This presentation is presented in partnership with Wharton Center and the One Book, One Community program, and is supported by College of Natural Science; College of Social Science; Honors College; Residential College in the Arts and Humanities; and University Outreach and Engagement.
