Strong leadership is not bound by a position or title. Great leaders can influence the world at any level.
This year, we're excited to host investigative reporter and esteemed author of Race Against Time, Jerry Mitchell. Mitchell was working for the Clarion-Ledger in the 1980s when he decided to begin investigating unsolved civil rights killings. His dogged pursuit of justice eventually lead to arrests of several Klansmen. He's continued his work for the past several decades and now shares his insight on history, social justice, and media throughout the United States while also running the Mississippi Center for Investigative Reporting.
Please consider joining us for this rare opportunity to hear this renowned author. All funds support Houston Christian students and leadership training at The Bush Center for Scholars and Leaders.
Your support of this event will allow our students, faculty and staff to hear about leadership from Jerry Mitchell. We will provide a link to the live stream and a follow up recording of the event to you to share with your community. You will also be provided a signed hardback copy of the book.
Thank you for your support!
