Athens, Ga. - Due to deteriorating weather conditions in the Northeast, NBC's Today Show weatherman Al Roker will be unable to travel to the University of Georgia to deliver the Holmes-Hunter Lecture Feb. 8 at 3 p.m. The lecture has been postponed and will be rescheduled.
The Holmes-Hunter Lecture at UGA honors Charlayne Hunter-Gault and the late Hamilton Holmes, who in 1961 became the first African-American students to enroll at UGA. Held annually since 1985, it focuses on race relations, black history and education with implications for inclusion and diversity.
