BRYANT HUDDLESTON
7 p.m. Philander Smith College. Free.


Arkansas Times readers will likely recall that back in May, there was an ugly incident in Imboden when native Bryant Huddleston (class of 1990), who had been scheduled to speak at graduation, was disinvited because some knuckledraggers in the community are homophobic (Huddleston is gay).

What a shame that the kids of Sloan-Hendrix High School were prohibited from hearing a message of encouragement from one of their own (one who's been quite successful with his media career) because of bigotry. Philander Smith College is stepping in to provide Huddleston with a platform to share his experiences with his fellow Arkansans.

Huddleston speaks as part of the college's Bless the Mic series.
