Charlayne Hunter-Gault, journalist, renowned national correspondent, news anchor, and activist will share her personal and professional journey as a civil rights and social justice advocate over the last five decades. Charlayne Hunter-Gault, author of To the Mountaintop: My Journey Through the Civil Rights Movement, challenged segregation laws in 1961 and became one of the first two black students - and the first black woman - to enroll at the University of Georgia. Hunter-Gault began her journalism career as the first black woman writer for The New Yorker magazine in the mid-1960s. From there, she went on to serve as the Harlem bureau chief for The New York Times, national correspondent for The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour, and a correspondent for CNN.
