Presidents Distinguished Speakers Series: Writer Leonard Pitts, Jr.

In his 36-year career, Leonard Pitts Jr. has been a columnist, a college professor, a radio producer and a lecturer. In 2004, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for commentary. But he calls himself a writer, period. On November 28, Pitts will discuss the history – and the future – of race in America. Much of that awful racial history is misunderstood or distorted, and Pitts will define its significance in an America that is now undergoing profound demographic change.
