Twenty-First Annual Mary Francis Early Lecture

Mary Francis Early Lecture featuring Nikki Giovanni
YouTube

This year's 21st Annual Mary Francis Early Lecture, hosted live on YouTube, features poet Nikki Giovanni. Each year, an invited speaker delivers a lecture that honors the quiet determination and dignity with which Mary Frances Early pursued her efforts to ensure that the state’s flagship university became an institution of higher learning for all people of Georgia. The annual lecture demonstrates the progress that has been made while also recognizing that work still remains in order to fully realize Ms. Early’s vision.
