2019 Community MLK Celebration Keynote Speaker: April Ryan

Jan. 30, 2019, 6:30 p.m.

The University of Virginia Office of the Vice President and Chief Officer for Diversity & Equity, in partnership with the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy and Lifetime Learning, Present the 2019 Community MLK Celebration keynote event with April Ryan.

White House Correspondent April Ryan has a unique vantage point as the only black female reporter covering urban issues from the White House – a position she has held since the Clinton era. On behalf of the American Urban Radio Networks, and through her “Fabric of America” news blog, she delivers her readership and listeners (millions of African Americans and close to 300 radio affiliates) a “unique urban and minority perspective in news.” Her position as a White House Correspondent has afforded her unusual insight into the racial sensitivities, issues, and attendant political struggles of our nation’s last presidents.

The event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. A free pre-event reception will begin at 5:30PM.
