USA Health will host Brandon Fleming on Feb. 2 at 10 a.m. for its inaugural event to celebrate the significant societal contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and to commemorate Black History Month. Because of the pandemic, the general public only will be able to view the event online.

Fleming’s story of struggle, success and service has inspired millions around the world. An at-risk youth and college dropout turned award-winning educator, Fleming is assistant debate coach at Harvard University and Founder/CEO of the Harvard Diversity Project.

Fleming was recruited to join the Harvard debate faculty at the age of 26. Harvard later approved Fleming’s proposal to establish a new department within the university system called the Harvard Diversity Project. Fleming now leads an executive staff and board that has raised $1 million to enroll over 100 students of color into Harvard’s international summer debate residency on full scholarship.

In addition to Fleming, Errol Crook, M.D., chair of the USA Health Department of Internal Medicine and a member of the 100 Black Men of Mobile, also will speak. Crook will talk about efforts here in Mobile to make a difference in our community and the lives of people who are underserved.
