PATRICIA HEATON & DAVID HUNT PLUS WILBERFORCE UNIVERSITY V.P. JOIN AMAZING GRACE PANEL
Hot off the press - Wilberforce University Vice President for Institutional Advancement Marshall Mitchell as well as producers Patricia Heaton and David Hunt (see below) join producer Ken Wales and U.S. Senator Sam Brownback on the panel discussion following the Thursday, February 22 screening of AMAZING GRACE, co-presented by Inter-Mission, Wordsmith Media, Inc. and Walden Media.
Established before the Civil War, the nation's oldest private black college was a powerful focal point in the struggle for equality and served as a destination point on the Ohio Underground Railroad. In 1863, Wilberforce became the first black college to be owned and operated by African-Americans. Wilberforce has played host to some of the most famous and influential African-Americans of the 19th and 20th centuries. Dr. W.E.B. DuBois, the pre-eminent black scholar and co-founder of the NAACP, taught there for two years. Other notables, including Leontyne Price, earned their undergraduate degrees at Wilberforce. Wilberforce celebrated its 150th anniversary last year.
