UK Senior to Give Lecture at the University of Central Missouri
Journalism and International Studies Senior, Cassidy Herrington, will give a public lecture March 29 at the University of Central Missouri.
The Muslim Student Assocation at UCM invited Herrington to speak on behalf of a column she wrote for The Kentucky Kernel in November of 2010. In the article, Herrington "unveils" her personal experience wearing the Muslim hijab for one month. Since its publication, the story has been read in more than 140 countries and reprinted in textbooks and publications nationally and abroad.
Her article may be found on the Kentucky Kernel webiste: http://kykernel.com/2010/10/31/%e2%80%98undercover%e2%80%99-in-hijab-unveiling-one-month-later/
