Janis Kearney to give lecture this week 
In celebration of Black History Month, the offices of Diversity and Student Affairs will host author Janis F. Kearney this Wednesday, Feb. 2, at 6:30 p.m. in the Student Union auditorium. Kearney, a native of the southeast Arkansas Delta, is a writer, lecturer, and oral historian who served as personal diarist to President William Jefferson Clinton, and was publisher of the award-winning Arkansas State Press newspaper, formerly owned by civil rights legend Daisy Gaston Bates. Kearney’s recently published book, Cotton Field of Dreams: a Memoir, paints a vivid picture about the lessons children of cotton sharecroppers learned from under-educated but wise parents whose greatest gift was to encourage their children to dream. A book signing will follow the lecture in the Mockingbird Room, adjacent to the auditorium. For more details on Kearney's visit, please see Kearney.
