Dr. Lisa Delpit is the Felton G. Clark Distinguished Professor at Southern University College of Education in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Dr. Delpit has earned accolades for her work on teaching and learning in urban schools and in diverse cultural settings. Delpit's placement as one of the foremost educators and writers on the subject of culturally-relevant approaches to educating students of color began with a series of eloquent and accessible essays in the Harvard Educational Review. Her work on school-community relations and cross-cultural communication was cited when she received her MacArthur "Genius Fellowship."

This lecture is supported through a generous endowment established by the late Robert Stanley Hornsby '41, J.D. '49 and Mrs. Lois Saunier Hornsby with the purpose of enriching a sense of unity for those engaged in the wonders of teaching and learning.
