OXFORD – Tom Brokaw, anchor of “NBC Nightly News” for more than two decades, will be guest lecturer at the University of Mississippi on Thursday night.
Brokaw plans to examine society in a high-tech world during a public address titled “Life is Not a Virtual Experience – Citizenship Beyond the Keyboard.” Free and open to the public, it is set for 7:30 p.m. in Fulton Chapel.
Named a UM Sally McDonnell Barksdale Fellow, Brokaw also will serve as a guest lecturer during the week for an honors college journalism course being taught by Curtis Wilkie, Ole Miss’ Cook chair of Journalism. Brokaw has lectured at Ole Miss several times, including the night before the 2008 presidential debate and last spring.
