Lucile Bluford: Her National Closeup
The Kansas City-born Brooks is a former television reporter, anchor, news director, and documentary producer who founded and heads the Washington, D.C.-based SRB Communications. She discusses the book—co-authored with Howard University’s Clint C. Wilson II—which recounts Bluford’s fight for admission into the University of Missouri’s graduate journalism program and assesses her dual role as a journalist and advocate for the women’s and civil rights movements.
The state of Missouri celebrates Bluford’s birthday, July 1, as Lucile Bluford Day.
Co-sponsored by the Kansas City Association of Black Journalists, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Beta Omega Chapter, and the Friends of the Kansas City Public Library.
