Martin Luther King Jr. Convocation

The campus community is invited to the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Friday, Jan. 19, with keynote speaker Tiffany Cross, media personality and political analyst. Cross’ address will begin at 12:45 p.m. in the Tinkham Veale University Center ballroom.

She is the former host of The Cross Connection on MSNBC and a 2020 Resident Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics. A longtime cable news veteran, Cross previously served as the D.C. Bureau Chief for BET Networks, an associate producer for CNN, and a freelance field producer. Cross also spent time on the campaign trail having both covered and worked on numerous local, state and federal campaigns.

Cross went on to co-found The Beat DC, a national platform that intersected politics, policy, business, media and people of color that was widely read by elected officials, CEOs and C-suite executives, opinion leaders and media influencers. 

This event is free and open to the CWRU campus community and the general public; however, registration is strongly encouraged. Get more information and register to attend.

Following the keynote address, there will be a dessert reception.
