Roslyn M. Brock is the fourth woman to serve at the head of the NAACP national board of directors — and she’s also the youngest. Brock will speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Room 52 of the University of North Texas Gateway Center, 600 Ave. D. Earlier that day, Brock will conduct an informal discussion there from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m. Brock’s visit to Denton is part of the UNT Distinguished Lecture Series. Brock has been a leader from within the NAACP for almost 30 years. After earning a master’s degree in health care administration from George Washington University, she initiated the Health Symposiums at the annual NAACP National Conventions and also served as vice chairwoman of the NAACP Health Committee. Her advocacy for accessible, affordable and quality health care for economically challenged communities resulted in the creation of a standing committee on health. Tickets to Tuesday’s talk cost $10 for the general public, or $8 for UNT faculty, staff and alumni. For tickets or for more information, visit http://studentaffairs.unt.edu .
