LEWISTON – Bates College has invited Juan Williams, one of America’s leading journalists and a senior correspondent for “Morning Edition,” to Lewiston. He will speak on “The Legacy of Brown vs. the Board of Education.”

Williams is not only a prominent correspondent, he is also the author of the well-regarded biography “Thurgood Marshall: American Revolutionary” and of “Eyes on the Prize: America’s Civil Rights Years, 1954-1965,” as well as other books.

His talk is part of a yearlong series of events at the college examining the legacy of the 1954 Supreme Court case outlawing segregation in public schools. His appearance is sponsored by the law firm of Skelton, Taintor and Abbot; the Harward Center for Community Partnership at Bates College; and the College Lectures Committee.

He will appear on Thursday, May 12, at 7:30 p.m. in the Bates College Chapel.
