April Ryan,
who covers the White House for American Urban Radio, will open this year's edition of Philander Smith College's Bless the Mic Lecture Series at 7 p.m. today at the college.

The event is free and open to the public in the M.L. Harris Auditorium.

This year's series will emphasize social justice.

Ryann appears regularly on CNN and is an author of books on race and the presidency. She's also made news herself from tough questioning of the Donald Trump White House She caused such discomfort that the Trump campaign produced a video characterizing Ryan as an enemy. This followed Trump's condescending treatment of her suggesting Ryan could set up a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus after she asked him about fulfilling campaign promises directed at inner cities.
