The Rev. Dr. Marmaduke H. Mendenhall in 1905 endowed a lectureship at DePauw to bring speakers of national and international fame to campus.
Austin Channing Brown, an author and leading voice on racial justice, is the next speaker in the Mendenhall Lecture Series, which focuses on the academic discussion of Christianity. The Mendenhall Lectures are free, and all are invited.
Channing Brown’s lecture, titled “Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness,” is the subtitle of her 2018 book “I’m Still Here.”
Before turning full time to writing and speaking, Channing Brown’s career was with nonprofits focused on homelessness, youths, fundraising, and the ministry. She is co-creator and executive producer of “The Next Question,” a video web series about racial justice.
