The Michael J. Colligan History Project welcomes Fox News contributor and best-selling author Juan Williams to Miami University Hamilton’s Parrish Auditorium on Tuesday, October 10 at 7 p.m.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Thurgood Marshall’s appointment as the first African American Justice on the U. S. Supreme Court. Political analyst and former NPR host Williams shares stories about Marshall's life, his heroic role in the Civil Rights Movement, and his stunning legal success. While Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X may be better known, Marshall's legacy continues to shape race relations to this day. Juan Williams is a two-time Emmy Award winner and author of Eyes on the Prize, a companion volume to the Ken Burns documentary of the Civil Rights Movement.

A public reception and book signing will follow.

The Michael J. Colligan History Project is a partnership of the Colligan Fund Committee of the Hamilton Community Foundation and Miami University’s Hamilton campus. Its goals are bringing the past to life, creating historical thinking, and building community identity.
