Dr. Michael Eric Dyson – is an American Book Award recipient and two-time NAACP Image Award winner – is one of the nation’s most influential and renowned public intellectuals. He has been named one of the 150 most powerful African Americans by Ebony magazine. The Philadelphia Weekly contends that Dr. Dyson “is reshaping what it means to be a public intellectual by becoming the most visible black academic of his time.”

Dear Appalachian Community Members,

Due to concerns about the approaching severe winter storm, the MLK Commemoration and dinner, featuring Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, scheduled for Thursday, January 21, 2016, has been canceled. We regret that we must make this decision, but for the safety of all in our community, we believe it is the right one.

The MLK Commemoration will be rescheduled at a later date during spring semester.
