Michael Brown, who was ousted as director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency after the Hurricane Katrina disaster, will speak at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Dole Institute of Politics on Kansas University's West Campus.
"Michael Brown was in a position to witness the entire federal, state and local response to one of our country's greatest natural disasters," said Bill Lacy, director of the Dole Institute. "Very few public servants have been as scrutinized and vilified by critics and the media. We are really looking forward to hearing him discuss his side of the story."
The program is free and open to the public and will include an advance question-and-answer session.
