WSSU Archives Presents the new James A. Gray Lecture Series Website

The Winston-Salem State University Archives would like to present the new James A. Gray Lecture Series site as a part of the Archives' Digital Library. Each speaker has a set of photographs, videos clips, a program or brochure from their specific engagement. The site itself can be searched by name, year and soon by a drop box to find a particular speaker.

The James A. Gray Lecture Series is a lecture series which brings in outstanding speakers from academia, public life and theology scholars to discuss topics such as gender and spirituality, the African-American family and the younger generations living spiritually in a secular society. These discussions and lectures have brought great conversation and ideas to contemplate to the campus of Winston-Salem State University since 1992 until today through an endowment from James A. Gray and we present them to you in our new digital library.
