On February 8, 2012, in honor of Black History Month, the Juanita E. Thornton/Shepherd Park Library was fortunate to host Dr. Lee Thornton, recently retired Richard Eaton chair in broadcast journalism and interim provost for equity and diversity at the University of Maryland, College Park.

He is a graduate of Fisk University where he majored in English and education. He studied under the late Harlem Renaissance writer Arna Bontemps, and he has a Juris Doctor from Howard University.
