Saint Louis University is highlighting Black History Month with a keynote address by pro-abortion journalist and MSNBC TV host Touré Neblett this evening, Feb. 7, at 7 p.m. in the Carlo Auditorium of Tegeler Hall. Neblett will speak on "How Racism Functions Today and Ways to Deal with it to Get Success."
"Without question, one of Saint Louis University's greatest strengths is our diversity," said University President Lawrence Biondi, S.J. "Here at SLU, people of diverse beliefs, diverse backgrounds and diverse faiths come together to learn, to live and to lead."
On January 25, 2013, Neblett, described on the MSNBC program The Cycle, how he and his girlfriend had an abortion, saying that the "choice saved my life." He further went on to thank God for abortion.
"I cannot imagine arguing against a woman's right to control her own body, and thus her life," said Neblett.
Prior to the election, Neblett tweeted: "Girls, get your abortions NOW in case the Republicans win."
Neblett hosts Fuse's Hiphop Shop and On the Record. He is the author of <em>Who's Afraid of Post-Blackness? What it Means to be Black Now</em>, which was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work of Non-Fiction. He is a regular contributor to MSNBC's the Dylan Ratigan Show, the Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell and NewsNation with Tamron Hall.
