Former Virginia Governor L. Douglas Wilder will be the speaker at the Joseph N. Green Jr. Lecture Series at the Attucks Theater on April 15. Wilder was the nation’s first African American governor, serving from 1990 to 1994. Prior to that, he served as lieutenant-governor from 1986 to 1990, and as a state senator from 1969 to 1985. In 2004, he was persuaded to run for mayor of the city of Richmond, and was elected with eighty percent of the vote, carrying every precinct in the city. He is presently a Distinguished Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University’s L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs.

The Joseph N. Green Jr. Lecture Series was organized in February 2011 to expose the local community to the significant achievements and impact of African Americans having roots in and/or historical connections to Hampton Roads. Tickets are $25.00. See http://www.sevenvenues.com/events/detail/the-honorable-l-douglas-wilder for more information.
