A North Central College professor is scheduled to take part in a panel discussion Monday morning about diversity in Chicago's suburbs.
Chicago Public Radio station WBEZ-FM 91.5 is scheduled to air the discussion from 9 to 10 a.m. Monday, July 30, during a live broadcast from Maxfield's Family Restaurant and Pancake House, 352 E. Roosevelt Road, Lombard.
The panel will include Ann Durkin Keating, Dr. C. Frederick Toenniges Professor of History at North Central College.
The event is part of WBEZ's summer-long exploration of "Race: Out Loud," a series of reports and public events that delve into the topic of diversity in the Chicago area. WBEZ is the Chicago affiliate of National Public Radio.
Keating has taught at North Central College since 1991 and helped establish the College's Chicago Term. She spearheaded publication of the book, "Encyclopedia of Chicago," and appears regularly as a public speaker and is often quoted as an expert source about Chicago-area history.
