ATLANTA (Feb. 6, 2014) – Clark Atlanta University (CAU) will celebrate African-American History Month with a historic forum on Feb. 12, with the Rev. Dr. Joseph E. Lowery, The Honorable Carl Ware and Ambassador Andrew Young, at 7 p.m. in Davage Auditorium in Haven-Warren Hall on campus, 223 James P. Brawley Drive, S.W.

CAU President Carlton E. Brown said, "These three freedom fighters and moral giants all had a unique relationship with America's civil rights movement and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and with Nelson Mandela in the struggle against South African apartheid. All three have ties to the city of Atlanta and to CAU. This will be a powerful exchange, sharing a lifetime of wisdom and experiences."

Presented by the Office of the President at CAU and moderated by Helene Gayle, M.D., M.P.H., president and CEO of CARE USA, the forum is free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Paid parking is in the deck at the corner of Mildred Street and Atlanta Student Movement Boulevard (formerly Fair Street).
