T.J. HOLMES
6:30 p.m. Philander Smith College. Free.

West Memphis native T.J. Holmes has had the type of career that many of his broadcast media colleagues no doubt envy. After graduating from the University of Arkansas, Holmes took successively higher profile positions at network affiliates, including KNTV in the San Francisco Bay Area.

He joined CNN in 2006, covering a number of big stories for the news network. He's a contributor and guest on MSNBC, and in 2011, he made a deal with BET.

His late-night show "Don't Sleep" is an engaging mix of political discussion, social commentary and entertainment. He's speaking at Philander Smith as part of the college's Black Male Initiative Program, which was founded by former President Walter Kimbrough.
