Description

Formal Naming of the Hank and Billye Suber Aaron Young Scholars Summer Research Institute and Launch of Book Honoring Dr. Samuel DuBois Cook




The Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke University is convening a formal program to celebrate the naming of the Cook Center’s annual Young Scholars Summer Research Institute after Henry (Hank) Aaron and Billye Aaron on Thursday, April 12, 2018. Leaders in community service and philanthropy in Atlanta and beyond, Hank and Billye Aaron have solidified their place in American history with a record-breaking baseball career and as the first African American woman in the Southeast to co-host a regular daily television talk show respectively. The Aarons are resolute in their commitment to education; Mrs. Billye Aaron and her husband co-founded the Hank Aaron Chasing the Dream Foundation, a philanthropic trust that offers grants to children to assist them in developing their talents and chasing their dreams, and, more recently, endowed scholarship funds for college students totaling more than $1 million. The Young Scholars Summer Research Institute is an educational enrichment program for middle and high-school students from the Durham Public Schools. Due to the Aaron’s continued commitment to education, we can think of no one more deserving to have their name affixed to a program dedicated to training the next generation of teachers, researchers and social justice scholars. The program will feature a keynote address from theologian, pastor and civic leader, the Reverend Dr. Otis Moss Jr. The event also will celebrate the legacy of Dr. Samuel DuBois Cook by the launch of a new book of essays from former students and individuals who were influenced by his visionary leadership, life and teachings.

Please note that if you have registered after 12:00 pm on Wednesday, April 11, pre-printed name badges will not be available with your information, but we welcome you to create a badge with your prefered information upon registration at the Nasher. Thank you in advance.
