Harold Ford, Jr., Festival of Ideas
Start Date: 2/16/2012Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 2/16/2012End Time: 9:30 PM

Event Description
Harold Ford, Jr. is coming to speak on campus as part of the David C. Hardesty Jr. Festival of Ideas on February 16th at 7:30 p.m. in the Mountainlair Ballrooms.

Ford served Tennessee in the United States Congress for ten years. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Michigan Law School, Ford took office at the age of 26 as one of the youngest members of Congress ever to serve.

Ford is the author of “More Davids Than Goliaths,” a New York Times bestseller. Reflecting on what he’s learned from his extended political family, the slings and arrows of the campaign trail and those across our nation who inspire him, the book explains Ford’s conviction that “at its best, leadership in government can solve, inspire and heal.” He reminds us that in America there are more Davids than Goliaths, more solutions than problems, more that unites us than divides us.

Described by President Bill Clinton as “the walking, living embodiment of where America ought to go in the 21st century,” Ford served as the chairman of the Democratic Leadership Council. He is now managing director and senior client relationship manager at Morgan Stanley, a news analyst for NBC and MSNBC and a professor of public policy at the NYU Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.

Ford’s talk is part of WVU’s celebration of Black History Month. He will sign copies of “More Davids Than Goliaths” immediately following his remarks. The WVU Barnes and Noble Bookstore will have books available for purchase at the event.
