    Seventy years ago this fall, Lyman T. Johnson enrolled as a student at the University of Kentucky. Johnson's courage and leadership up to that moment resulted in the first racially integrated class at our University. Commemorating Johnson's significant first steps and the examples set by many students, faculty, and staff who followed him, the University will host a series of events throughout the 2019-2020 academic year that commemorate UK's 70 years of integration.

    This year of commemoration will begin with an assembly on the morning of Friday, August 30, 2019. This opening assembly will feature remarks from Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central. In addition to being an accomplished comedian and television personality, Noah is also the author of Born A Crime, a nationally acclaimed autobiography focused on his childhood growing up in apartheid South Africa. This assembly will draw on Noah's reflections of his life from South Africa to the United States, sharing thoughts on the importance of diversity and social justice dialogues. In addition to Trevor Noah, the assembly will also feature remarks from UK representatives and the granting of an honorary doctorate to UK alumnae Dr. Doris Wilkinson to begin the year-long series of looking back and moving forward as we continue to create a campus where everyone can belong and where every voice matters.
