Lackey on Haverford

Michael Lackey gave a preview of his forthcoming book, The Haverford Discussions, during a recent talk at Roosevelt University on the subject of race. Former Roosevelt faculty member St. Clair Drake—along with Ralph Ellison and numerous others— took part in the 1969 gathering at Haverford that is the subject of Professor Lackey’s book. The well attended event was covered by the Roosevelt newspaper—the article may be read online here. The Haverford Discussions will be published this fall.
