Barbara Reynolds, a noted author and columnist, will speak at Anne Arundel Community College next month on "The Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr."
Ms. Reynolds, who wrote "And Still we Rise," a book of interviews with 50 black role models, has been invited to speak at the Arnold campus on April 6. The event is sponsored by the Black Student Union.
In her writings, Ms. Reynolds contends women and minorities in communications have the power to change attitudes and dispel stereotypes.
Ms. Reynolds is an editor and editorial board member for USA Today. She was a reporter for the Cleveland Press and Chicago Tribune. In 1976, she became the second black woman to be selected to receive a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard University.
The noon lecture, at the Pascal Center for Performing Arts, is free.
