St. Davids, PA: Eastern University is delighted to announce the transformation of its distinctive lecture series, Windows on the World. Starting Spring 2020, Eastern will feature dynamic speakers on a monthly basis rather than a weekly basis, with three exciting names lined up for the spring semester.
February 21: Howard Stevenson: Racial Literacy Leader and TED Talk Speaker
Howard Stevenson ՚80, an EU alum who also happens to be Bryan Stevenson’s brother, will spend the day at Eastern reflecting on important issues in honor of Black History Month. He will speak at Windows, have lunch with students, and perhaps speak at the Honors Forum or with other student groups later in the day. Stevenson’s work involves developing culturally relevant, in-the-moment, strength-based measures and therapeutic interventions that teach emotional and racial literacy to families and youth.
