Anthony Lee and Willie Wyatt, Jr., who integrated Auburn University in 1964 will share their experiences as part of the school's College of Liberal Arts Reads celebration and the university's commemoration of 50 years of integration at Auburn.
The Wyatt and Lee discussion will be held on Tuesday, October 1, from 2-3:15 p.m. in the Student Center, room 2222.
The event is part of the College of Liberal Arts' semester-long, college-wide reading of Anne Rivers Siddons' novel "Heartbreak Hotel." In the novel, Siddons, an Auburn alumna, fictionalizes her days at Auburn during the tumultuous civil rights period. As a student, Siddons served as a columnist for The Plainsman and was let go from the newspaper staff when she wrote a column favoring integration. The novel recounts the event and gives insight into the Auburn experience of the past.
