On Monday, October 22, Temple University Libraries, the College of Liberal Arts, the General Education Program and the Office of the Provost welcomed distinguished journalist and NPR Senior Correspondent Juan Williams to a packed house.
Williams, one of America’s leading political writers and thinkers, gave his engaging lecture, “Eyes on the Prize: The Truths of American Race Relations” to a capacity crowd in Paley Library Lecture Hall. Williams is a Senior Correspondent for National Public Radio, a political analyst for Fox Television and a regular panelist on FoxNews Sunday. He has written prize-winning columns and editorials for The Washington Post. Williams has also worked extensively in the documentary medium, having won an Emmy Award for his television writing.
After his lecture, Williams sat down with reference librarian Fred Rowland to talk about his most recent book, Enough : the phony leaders, dead-end movements, and culture of failure that are undermining Black America– and what we can do about it. The interview was recorded and is available as a downloadable mp3 file:
