Andrew Cohen is an award-winning journalist and a professor of journalism at Carleton University whom The New York Times has called one of “Canada’s most distinguished authors.” A syndicated columnist with Postmedia News and former Washington correspondent with The Toronto Globe and Mail, Cohen has written several highly acclaimed books. Cohen is now working on a biography of Medgar Evers, the slain civil rights activist. Cohen will discuss who Evers was, how he made a difference in 1950s and 1960 Mississippi, and why he is the unsung hero of the movement who speaks eloquently to us today.
