The lecture will feature Bernard Harris, retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel and K-State alumnus, as he discusses "Resistance to Power." His talk will look at the lives of seven African American civilians growing up in segregated America who became members of a rare group of African American U.S. Army officers in World War I.
