Charles ("Chuck") Taylor, professor of education at Edgewood College and president of the consulting firm Roar Enterprises, Inc., will serve as the keynote speaker at St. Norbert College's annual Soul Food Dinner. The dinner, held in celebration of Black History Month, will take place on Saturday, Feb. 21, at 5 p.m. in the Michels Commons ballroom on the St. Norbert College campus.

Taylor's career includes a wide variety of accomplishments. He has produced an award-winning documentary and written over a dozen books, both fiction and nonfiction.

It was Taylor's vision that resulted in the Madison Urban League's multi-million-dollar building and Center for Economic Development. Taylor also founded the AHANA Student Leadership Conference in the 1980s to train Wisconsin high school students of color to become future leaders. The conference lasted over 20 years and trained several thousand Wisconsin students.
