This year's Living Legends Series brings the Rev. Dr. C.T. Vivian to NC State on Monday, October 28, 2013 at 6:00PM in the African American Cultural Center in Witherspoon, Room 126.
Please join us for this opportunity to hear C.T. Vivian, minister, author, and friend of Martin Luther King, Jr. during the American Civil Rights Movement.
C.T. Vivian is the founder of the C.T. Vivian Leadership Institute, Inc. (CTVLI), an Atlanta-based non-profit organization dedicated to the development and sustainability of communities.
Dr. Vivian is also the founder of BASIC Diversity, Inc. (BASIC), a diversity consultancy that helps organizations leverage the benefits and minimize the challenges created by a diverse workforce by creating environments where people can effectively collaborate across cultural differences. BASIC is best known for its Race Awareness Workshop, which has been evaluated as the most effective race relations program in America and has been offered numerous times at NC State.
Dr. Vivian was featured throughout PBS’s acclaimed documentary Eyes On The Prize (1987 & 2006). PBS later produced a full-length presentation, The Healing Ministry of the Rev. Dr. C.T. Vivian. He is also featured as both an activist and analyst in the series, The People’s Century (PBS/WGBH, 1998), and in the Tom Brokaw documentary King (History Channel, 2008).
