Wil Haygood Presents The 1960s: Why We Are Still Learning from that Unforgettable Decade

Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 7pm. Harry T. Wilks Conference Center

The 1960s was the most bloody, fearless, dangerous decade of the 20th century, and it continues to echo upon present day America. Wil Haygood explores iconic figures from that era, as revealed in his forthcoming book, Tigerland, about an all-black Ohio high school in 1968 that made history with grace and glory amidst the tumult. 

Boadway Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence at Miami’s Department of Media, Journalism & Film, Wil Haygood’s books include Showdown: Thurgood Marshall and the Supreme Court Nomination that Changed America (2015). In 2013, Haygood’s bestselling The Butler: A Witness to History was made into an award-winning film starring Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker.  Haygood covered events for the Washington Post and Boston Globe including Nelson Mandela’s release from prison, the ascent of President Obama, Hurricane Katrina, and his own experience as the hostage of Somali rebels. 

This is a free public event with a reception to follow.
