Please join us for a lecture by visiting scholars Ambassador Thomas Melady, PhD, and Margaret Badum Melady, PhD. Ambassador and Dr. Melady will discuss their recently published book, Ten African Heroes: the Sweep of Independence in Black Africa, on Thursday, Sept. 15, at 9 a.m. in Falvey Memorial Library's first floor lounge. The book documents the authorsâ€™ own experiences of a turbulent time in African history when ten men chose a non-violent approach as a means of creating change and seeking independence. In particular, it emphasizes the role that Christianity played in the actions of the men. A book sale and signing will follow the presentation.
