Presidential candidate visits RVC Dec. 2

Her experience as a woman in politics is the subject of a lecture to be presented by Democratic presidential candidate Carol Moseley Braun at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Dec. 2 in the Woodward Technology Center, rooms 117-119, at Rock Valley College.

Braun has devoted much of her life to public service from her work as an Assistant United States Attorney and Illinois State Representative to United States Senator and U.S. Ambassador. Braun took her next and biggest political step in September when she announced her candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Braun is currently teaching law and political science at Morris Brown College and DePaul University and maintaining a law practice and business consultant agency in Chicago. Braun will be addressing students about the important roles women have played in the American political system.

Dr. Beth Ingle, professor of history at RVC, says: “Ms. Braun agreed to speak when the offer was made by a campaign worker who is the mother of a student in my class. We’re very excited about this opportunity for the students and the campus.”

The lecture is expected to last 40-45 minutes. The event is open to the public, although some seating is reserved for students. Information: 921-4517.
