Black History Month starts next Wednesday, and to celebrate Tidewater Community College has announced its list of activities and speakers, including Dillard University President Walter Kimbrough. The national theme, “The Crisis in Black Education,” will lead conversations about the role of education in African American history.

Kimbrough, an Atlanta native now residing in New Orleans, is this year’s keynote speaker for the college’s annual celebration. His lecture is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 21.

Before taking on the role of president at Dillard, Kimbrough was the director of student activities and leadership at Old Dominion University and has also held positions at Emory University, Georgia State University and Albany State University.

Kimbrough’s research and writings focus on historically black colleges and universities and African American college students.

In 2010, Kimbrough earned a spot in Ebony Magazine’s Power 100 list of the doers and influencers in the African American community alongside big names such as former President Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama, Jay-Z, Richard Parsons, Tyler Perry, Debra Lee and Tom Joyner. In 2010 he was designated as one of 25 college presidents to follow on Twitter (@HipHopPrez) by BachelorsDegree.com.

The 2017 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Recognition Program will take place on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 5:30 p.m. in the Norfolk Campus Student Center.
