Anne Farris Rosen, Deep South Dispatch: Memoir of a Civil Rights Journalist

Saturday, April 28 at 6 p.m. (Sturgis Hall)
*In partnership with Arkansas Literary Festival
*Book signing to follow

Born in the South during a time of entrenched racial segregation, the late New York Times journalist John Herbers witnessed a succession of landmark civil rights uprisings that rocked the country, the world, and his own conscience. Herbers’ retrospective is a timely and critical illumination on America’s current racial dilemmas and ongoing quest for justice. Herbers’ daughter, Anne Farris Rosen, an award-winning freelance journalist, will discuss the book and her father’s work.

She has covered politics, government and social policy issues for The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Pew Research Center. She was a general assignment and political reporter for The Arkansas Gazette from 1985 to 1991 and reported on Arkansas for The Times from 1985 to 1994.
