Feb 11, 2019–LeMoyne-Owen College will host the National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Foundation’s Legacy Lecture Series Wednesday, Feb. 13, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Little Theater in the Alma C. Hanson Student Center.
The theme of the lecture, presented by Wells Fargo, is “Defining Who We Are.” It will tackle topics ranging from social media: protect your image, civil rights and legacy leadership, and ethics in leadership.
The nonprofit National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Foundation was founded in 1986 by members of the National Council of Alumni Associations. The foundation is dedicated to sustaining and growing Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) through alumni recognition, scholarships, training and technical assistance, and programs to promote humanitarian involvement.
The lecture series is held on several Historically Black College and University (HBCU) campuses during the school year. Its goal is to expose students to resources, talents and expertise of educators, scholars, researchers, celebrities, behaviorists and practitioners who share their collective wisdom, knowledge and experiences with the next generation of leaders.

Dortch Jr., NBAC Hall of Fame chair; Jamila Mustafa, MTV and BET Networks, iHeart Media and ESPN personality; Stevie Briggs Jr., former NFL player and actor; Anta Sallah Njie, 2018-2019 Miss NBCA Hall of Fame; Hank Stewart, author and poet; Natalie Purham, 2018-2019 Miss LeMoyne-Owen College, and Karim Muhammad, LOC SGA president.
