The 2017 Dr. William G. Anderson Lecture Series: Slavery to Freedom Continued

Dr. Anderson receives award

William G. Anderson, D.O., was a founder of the Albany Movement, a seminal struggle for civil rights in Georgia in the 1960s, and the first African American to have been elected national president of the American Osteopathic Association.

Friend and faculty member of the MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine throughout its history, he has been essential in developing and sustaining the “Slavery to Freedom” lecture series. To honor his singular achievements as an activist, a physician and cornerstone of this program, we are proud to name it in his honor: the “Dr. William G. Anderson Lecture Series: Slavery to Freedom.”
