Dr. Anekwe wrote the book, Narrative Visions of the Willowbrook State School: An Artistic Survey in Bioethics and Special Education (Ethically Speaking Press, 2016) “to tell stories through art for countless children with special needs who were negatively affected by the former Willowbrook State School.” Dr. Anekwe holds master’s degrees from Tuskegee, Columbia, and Pace Universities in addition to a doctorate in education from Auburn University.

This is a CC CLUE event, and all are welcome.
