Next month, the College of Communication Arts and Sciences will be joining more than 30 units across campus to help kick off the 22nd annual Dr. William G. Anderson Lecture Series, Slavery to Freedom "An American Odyssey."

Now in its 22nd year, this program put on by the College of Osteopathic Medicine brings multicultural leaders to campus to interact with students, faculty, administrators and members of the community.

William G. Anderson, D.O., was a founder of the Albany Movement, a seminal struggle for civil rights in Georgia in the 1960s, and the first African American to have been elected national president of the American Osteopathic Association.

Friend and faculty member of the MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine throughout its history, he has been essential in developing and sustaining the “Slavery to Freedom” lecture series. To honor his singular achievements as a physician, an activist and cornerstone of this program, we are proud to name it in his honor: the Dr. William G. Anderson Lecture Series: Slavery to Freedom.
