Author and political analyst Donna Brazile will speak at 5 p.m. Friday at the Fresno State North Gym, Room 118.
Brazile became the first African American to direct a major presidential campaign in 2000 when she managed Al Gore’s camp. She is the vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee and appears regularly on television.
Brazile’s speech is called “Beyond the Dream: From Selma to Ferguson.”
Parking permits are available at daily permit dispensers for $3.
The event is the first of two major speeches sponsored by the Central Valley Cultural Heritage Institute and other groups as part of Black History Month. Rev. Jeremiah Wright will speak on March 2.
