CNN journalist Soledad O’Brien delivers the 47th Hanify-Howland Memorial Lecture on March 19.
An audience of students, faculty, staff and members of the public attended the talk in the Hogan Campus Center Ballroom.
Students listen to O'Brien's talk. Since 1965, the Hanify-Howland lecture series has brought to the Holy Cross campus a series of distinguished speakers who have exemplified in their own work the spirit of public service that the series was established to encourage.
Seniors Luke Sullivan, left, and Kelsey Russell, co-chairs of the committee that selected the Hanify-Howland speaker, introduce O'Brien.
O’Brien signs copies of her book “The Next Big Story: My Journey Through the Land of Possibilities” following her talk.
In keeping with the traditional practice of the Hanify-Howland Series, O’Brien conducted a seminar on campus, which allowed students to interact with the speaker in an intimate and intellectually exciting environment.
Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., president, delivers remarks at a dinner for O'Brien prior to her talk.
