Everett C. Parker Ethics in Telecommunications Lecture and Awards Breakfast

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

The Everett C. Parker Ethics in Telecommunications Lecture was created in 1983 to recognize Parker's pioneering work as an advocate for the public's rights in broadcasting.  The event is the only lecture in the country to examine telecommunications in the digital age from an ethical perspective. We honored three individuals who exemplify Dr. Parker's achievements.  Read our press release about the event.

If you missed the event don't worry, we've got some video highlights below. In addition to our honoreees, we were pleased to have the UCC's General Minister and President, Reverend Geoffrey Black offer the invocation and introduction and UCC member Bradley Thomas singing, at the closing, "A Change is Gonna Come."
