Breakfast with Don Mullan June 10

by

Please join our conversation with Don Mullan, Irish author and world-renowned humanitarian aboutStories of Struggle and Triumph – A Journey to Justice. Pegged in his youth as a “slow learner,” Mullan was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of 38 and overcame his condition to become an author, investigative journalist, and broadcaster as well as a documentary producer.

Mullan’s life story, along with literary and media accomplishments, testify to the power of both tenacious non-violent political activity and learning approaches that transcend standardized tests. He has written several best-selling books, including Eyewitness Bloody Sunday – The Truth. He has also contributed to several documentaries and co-produced three award-winning movies. Mullan edited the book Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass: an American Slave, which was released to coincide with Pres. Barack Obama’s recent Ireland visit. Mullan has also been instrumental in getting a statue commemorating Douglass erected in Ireland.

Mullan received A Defender of Human Dignity Award from the International League for Human Rights at the United Nations, and will receive the Doctorate of Honorary Letters from DePaul University School for New Learning at its 2011 Commencement.

This event is open to the public. If you haven’t already, please respond by contacting (312) 362-8455 or eventRSVP@depaul.edu due to limited seating.
