Heard on Campus: Juan Williams

October 18, 2006

"Journalists help frame American race relations. They allow people to see themselves and their culture in a different light." -- Juan Williams, author and National Public Radio senior correspondent, during a lecture as part of the Foster Conference of Distinguished Writers, conducted Oct. 17 on Penn State's University Park campus. Williams has written numerous books, including the recently published "Enough: The Phony Leaders, Dead-End Movements and Culture of Failure That Are Undermining Black America -- and What We Can Do About It." He has written a biography of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and a nonfiction bestseller, "Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Years, 1954-1965," which accompanied a critically acclaimed television series on the Public Broadcasting Service.
