The Michael Davis Lecture, previously scheduled for Sunday at Southeast Missouri State University, has been postponed due to a scheduling conflict.
Gerald Boyd, managing editor of the New York Times, was to present the annual lecture. University officials are working to reschedule the lecture with Boyd for later in the spring.
The lecture recognizes the contributions of African-Americans in the media. The event also honors the late Michael Davis, a mass communications student at Southeast who died as a result of a hazing incident.
