There will also be a brief Q&A with Professor Steven Classen, chair of the Department of Communication and Cinematic Arts and author of “Watching Jim Crow: The Struggles Over Mississippi TV.” Published by Duke University Press, Classen’s work received the 2004 McGannon Center Award for Social and Ethical Relevance in Communication Policy Research.
