Students are invited to engage in a conversation with Douglas Blackmon in a smaller setting, sponsored by the Northeastern Humanities Center. From 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday, January 17, 2014, Mr. Blackmon will be available for a student discussion in room 310R in Renaissance Park. This is a wonderful chance to engage with an extraordinary person, and we encourage interested students, especially those in related courses to take advantage of this unique opportunity.
