Maria Franquiz Lecture “Illuminating the World through the Gift of Bilingualism”

Dr. Maria Franquiz is a nationally recognized scholar in education with an expertise in the field of bilingual education. In addition to her roles at the University of Utah College of Education, she is co-editor of Bilingual Research Journal, the premier research journal in bilingual education, and has published two books and numerous scholarly articles in prestigious journals. Bilingualism in education, especially public schooling, and in society is a critical issue facing our city, state and nation. Increases in diverse language and cultures warrant our attention if we are to succeed in addressing our students’ educational needs. Focusing on bilingualism as a strength versus a liability has the potential to shed positive light on issues of multiculturalism facing our educational system. During her time in Waco, Dr. Franquiz will also give presentations at Region 12, meet with Baylor education students, and tour local school campuses where the School of Education is collaborating to train future teachers.

The Texas Collection presents "On Changing Tides: Doris Miller, Pearl Harbor and the Civil Rights Movement" featuring Dr. T. Michael Parrish of the Baylor University Department of History

The Texas Collection presents "On Changing Tides: Doris Miller, Pearl Harbor and the Civil Rights Movement" featuring Dr. T. Michael Parrish of the Baylor University Department of History. A native Wacoan, Miller served as a messman in the United States Navy and earned the Navy Cross for bravery due to his actions during the December 7, 1941 battle. Miller would go on to become the face of a recruiting drive and the nascent Civil Rights Movement. He died when his new ship, the Liscome Bay, was torpedoed by the Japanese in 1943. Dr. Parrish's lecture will explore Miller's life and legacy. His talk will be based on his book, Doris Miller, Pearl Harbor and the Birth of the Civil Rights Movement. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served, and Dr. Parrish will be available to sign copies of his book after the lecture. The Baylor Bookstore will be on-hand to sell copies of the book as well.
