NBC's "Today" show weatherman Al Roker will give the rescheduled 2013 Holmes-Hunter Lecture April 25 at 2:30 p.m. in the Chapel. The talk originally was slated for Feb. 8.

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.
