Ernest Green | Slavery to Freedom

Event Description

As one of the Little Rock Nine, Ernest Green and eight classmates were the first to integrate Little Rock Arkansas’s Central High School in 1954, for which they later received the Congressional Gold Medal from President Bill Clinton. He went on to earn his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Michigan State University and has held a career in both the public and private sectors, working to address inequities in labor and education. The MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine and the MSU Alumni Association LENS are extremely pleased to host the The Dr. William G. Anderson Lecture Series: Slavery to Freedom. This Lecture series is designed to give members of Spartan Nation opportunities for interaction with multicultural leaders from education, business, industry, entertainment and government. This series has featured living icons of the American Civil Rights Movement.
