Diversity and Multicultural Student Life in partnership with Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity are proud to present the 2021 Alpha Lecture Series featuring journalist, author, and political commentator, Mr. Roland Martin.
His lecture is titled "Speak Brother: A Black Man’s View of America." In the midst of a current climate surrounding racial tensions and civil unrest, particularly within the African American community and law enforcement, we hope Mr. Martin’s remarks will allow our K-State community to engage in thoughtful and educational dialogue after the conclusion of the lecture.
