Wilkins to speak here

Roger Wilkins, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and professor of history at George Mason University, will speak at U.Va. March 6. His talk, which is free and open to the public, will take place at 7:30 p.m. in Minor Hall, Room 125.  

His talk, "Leadership in Journalism: An Historical Perspective," is part of the "Explorations in Black Leadership" series, an oral history project sponsored by the Institute for Public History and the Darden School.  Wilkins has written for the New York Times and the Washington Post. While at the Post, he received a Pulitzer Prize in 1972 for coverage of the Watergate affair. He is the author of Jefferson's Pillow: The Founding Fathers and The Dilemma of Black Patriotism, and a highly acclaimed autobiography, A Man's Life. 

Wilkins, who was an assistant attorney general in the Johnson administration, chairs the board of trustees of the Africa-America Institute and is on the board of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
