What to See at Duke This Week: Hank Aaron

Monday, April 9, 2018
Duke Today

"Like many African-American baseball stars of the 1960s, Hank Aaron was as much a leader in his communities as he was on the field; in his case, Aaron’s wife Billye was with him matching his efforts. A career of promoting K-12 education – and their long friendship with Samuel DuBois Cook – brings the home run slugger and his wife to Duke’s Cook Center on Social Equity. The center is naming its summer young scholars research program after the Aarons. The program offers summer research and enrichment opportunities to Durham Public Schools’ middle-schoolers and high-schoolers. The event will also honor Cook’s legacy. 5:30 p.m. Nasher Museum of Art. The event is free, but online registration is required."
