Geoffrey Canada, president and former CEO of the Harlem Children’s Zone, will deliver the annual Louis L. Redding Lecture on Civil Rights and Social Justice at 5 p.m., Tuesday, March 3, in Mitchell Hall on the University of Delaware campus in Newark.

Canada is known for his visionary leadership and pioneering efforts to enhance the quality of life for children and families in Harlem, New York, through education reform. The New York Times called the Harlem Children’s Zone “one of the most ambitious social-policy experiments of our time.” In 2011, Canada was named to Time Magazine's list of the 100 list most influential people in the world; and in 2014, he was named one of Fortune’s 50 greatest leaders in the world.

A graduate of Bowdoin College and the Harvard Graduate School of Education, he was featured in the award-winning documentary Waiting for ‘Superman.'
