College of Communication to host award-winning author Samuel G. Freedman, Nov. 16

Samuel G. Freedman

The Diederich College of Communication will host Samuel G. Freedman, award-winning Columbia University journalism professor, New York Times education and religion columnist and author of nine acclaimed books, on Thursday, Nov. 16, at 4 p.m. in Johnston Hall 106 (the jPad). Freedman will present his recently released “Into the Bright Sunshine: Young Hubert Humphrey and the Fight for Civil Rights” in a side-by-side discussion with Milwaukee pastor Rev. Dr. Lisa Bates-Froiland. Meg Kissinger, investigative reporter and Columbia journalism professor, will moderate.

Before a shift in vocation, Bates-Froiland wrote her doctoral dissertation on the conflicted legacy of Hubert Humphrey.  Her ministry at Redeemer Church, adjacent to Marquette University’s campus, involves a diverse population with deep connections with a neighborhood marked by poverty and promise.
