Sponsored by the History Department and the Charles Redd Center for Western Studies, Miller will discuss "The Role of Native American Music in Ancient and Modern Native American Culture" at 11 a.m. in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium.

Sponsored by the Sociology Department, Miller will discuss "Racial Relations and Reconciliation" from 3-4:15 p.m. in C-215 Eyring Science Center.
