Controversial journalist William Worthy will be the guest speaker at Thursday's convocation.
Following a speech in Springfield, Mo., in which he delivered some favorable comments on Fidel Castro, and socialism, St Benedict's College of Atchison, Kansas, cancelled a speech he was to have made there.
"The Latin American Volcano: Where Will It Explode?" will be Mr. Worthy's topic.
As a reporter for the Baltimore Afro-American, he travelled to China without a passport. He was
also in pre-revolutionary Cuba in 1957.
Mr. Worthy has served as a television aid to Robert Drew's "Yanqui, No! program, lauded by critics as a brilliant innovation in technique.
