NPR/CNN reporter Charlayne Hunter-Gault visits Feb. 26

An award-winning journalist for NPR and CNN will talk about Africa, from where she now reports, during a presentation Feb. 26 that is free and open to the public. Charlayne Hunter-Gault will also take part in a question-and-answer session in Whitley Auditorium earlier in the day.

Hunter-Gault is the author of New News Out of
Africa: Uncovering the African Renaissance
and In My
, a memoir of the civil rights movement, fashioned
around her experiences as the first black woman to attend the
University of Georgia.

Her talk, “Africa on the Edge,” takes place Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. in the McCrary Theatre in the Center for the Arts.

Students will also have an opportunity to ask Hunter-Gault questions from 4-5 p.m. at Whitley Auditorium. Anthony Hatcher, an associate professor of communications, will be moderating the event.

The talk is sponsored by the Liberal Arts
Forum and the School of Communications.
