Noted Author and Economist to Speak February 4
Dr. Julianne Malveaux, author, journalist, lecturer, will be the keynote speaker for UTC's Black History month Wednesday, February 4, at 7 p.m. in the Racoon Mountain Room at the University Center.
Malveaux will speak on "The Effects of American Economy on Women and Minorities in the Year 2000." Self-described as a "mad economist," Malveaux believes economics is the common thread in our nation's most contemporary problems, including issues of race and gender. Her straightforward style has made her a popular lecturer on college campuses and a highly-respected commentator on "CNN & Company," PBS's "To The Contrary," and C-SPAN.
Dr. Malveaux's weekly syndicated columns appear in 20 newspapers across the nation. Her most recent book, Sex, Lies and Stereotypes, is a collection of her best essays. She is a frequent contributor to black issues in Higher Education, Ms., USA Today, and the San Francisco Sun Reporter. Her live radio program, "Julianne Malveaux's Capital Reports" is broadcast each Monday in New York City.
Dr. Malveaux has served as president of the Black Leadership Forum and vice-president of the San Francisco NAACP. She is vice-president of the National Child Labor Committee and president of the Business and Professional Women's Club. She is also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She is a native of San Francisco and a graduate of Boston College. She earned her doctorate in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information call Stephynie Chapman at 425-2230.
