Focus is on the Future During Black History Month

February is Black History Month and NASA's Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, will recognize the contributions made by the African-American community during a special Heritage Month Event on Thursday, February 14 from 9 - 11 a.m. in Glenn's DEB Auditorium.

Glenn has invited Thomas Todd, a civil rights attorney in Chicago, Ill., to be keynote speaker. Todd will address this month's national theme "The Color Line Revisited: Is Racism Dead? (Need to Focus on the Future)" from a legal perspective.

Well-recognized and respected in his field, Todd's extensive background includes serving as counsel in several Supreme Courts, publishing a multitude of academic and professional articles, and receiving over 500 awards and honors. Additionally, he holds the honor of being the first full-time black law professor at Northwestern University's School of Law. Todd has spoken on civil rights and education for various organizations and institutions throughout the U.S., Africa and Mexico.

Media representatives interested in attending this employee event should call ahead to Barbara Kakiris or the Media Relations Office (216-433-2901) in order to be cleared through security.
