Ernest Green will serve as the event's keynote speaker. Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, in September 1941, Green and eight other Black students were the first to integrate Little Rock's Central High School following the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education that declared segregation illegal. They later would become known as the "Little Rock Nine." He received a bachelor's degree in social science and a masters degree in sociology from Michigan State University. He also has received honorary doctorates from Michigan State University, Tougaloo College and Central State University.
