Andrew Young to Deliver Mary Frances Early Lecture

Don’t miss your chance to hear from an accomplished civil rights activist at this year’s Mary Frances Early Lecture! As the first African-American to earn a degree from UGA, Mary Frances Early was a key contributor to the Civil Rights Movement. Recognizing her as a avid activist in fighting discrimination, the university honors her impact on the institution and the nation at large by holding an annual lecture in her name.

Andrew Young

Andrew Young will deliver the tenth annual Mary Frances Early Lecture for the Spring of 2010. Having been a former ambassador to the United Nations and Civil Rights leader, no individual seems better fit for this year’s guest lecturer than Andrew Young. To name a few of what seems to be an endless array of accomplishments, Young acted as top aide to Dr. Martin Luther King during the Civil Rights Movement in the South,  served on the House of Representatives and Member of Congress for the 5th District. More recently, Young has been traveling around the world to help developing nations rebuild their economies.

The lecture will be given on April 6 at 4 p.m. and will be held at the UGA Chapel.
