Best-selling author to speak at TCL

The Technical College of the Lowcountry's PILAU program will host a lecture by best-selling author Michael Eric Dyson at 1 p.m. Wednesday in the MacLean Hall Auditorium on the Beaufort campus. The free event is open to the public.

Dyson will present a lecture titled "The Survival Guide for Black Men in America" and connect civil rights identity to hip-hop culture while forging links between older and younger Americans.

TCL's PILAU -- Promoting Integrity, Leadership, Academics and cultural Understanding -- program is dedicated to improving the recruitment, retention and academic success of black men. The two-year program is funded by a $1.1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
