90 Minutes Series: a conversation with Charlie Savage

Pulitzer Prize winner with The New York Times
ATHENS, Ohio (October 17, 2016)—Charlie Savage is a Washington correspondent for The New York Times. Attend Savage’s talk as part of the 90 Minutes Series on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 8:00 p.m. in Morton Hall, Room 201 moderated by Connor Perrett.

Originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana, Savage graduated from Harvard College and earned a master’s degree form Yale Law School as part of a Knight Foundation fellowship. He has been covering post-9/11 issues, which include national security, individual rights and the rule of law, since 2003 when he was a reporter for the Miami Herald.

He has also co-taught a seminar on national security and the Constitution at Georgetown University’s political science department. Savage has written several books, which include the bestseller “Power Wars.”

Education outside the classrooms
In an effort to bring issues that matter to campus, the “90 Minutes” series is building partnerships across the university community that will bring diverse speakers to campus.

OU Association of Black Journalists, Housing and Residence Life, Office of Student Affairs, E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, Scripps College Diversity Committee, Office of Diversity and Inclusion, The LGBT Center, Honors Tutorial College, Center for Law, Justice and Culture, Office of the Provost and the Political Science Department are pitching in to make these events happen. The aim of the series is to create discussions on politics, racism, sexism and global topics. These events will expose OHIO students – all students on campus – to men and women who have faced adversity or who have seen bigotry and discrimination happen for others but have stepped forward to address those social and cultural wrongs.

We are hopeful that everybody who attends one of these events will come away with a more enlightened view.
