Arthur L. Johnson Urban Perspectives Lecture Series
The Presidential election is Nov. 6, and talk is heating up among political pundits who are analyzing President Obama's last four years in office. Join the Wayne State University Alumni Association for a conversation with Detroit Free Press columnist Rochelle Riley and Detroit News political cartoonist Henry Payne, who will share their views on key hot-button issues that will affect both the Presidential and local elections this year. The discussion will be moderated by WDET-FM’s Craig Fahle.

Rochelle Riley’s commentary on social, political and cultural issues appears in the Detroit Free Press. She makes frequent television and radio appearances, including on National Public Radio, WDET-FM and WDIV-TV's “Flashpoint.”

Henry Payne is an editorial cartoonist and writer for The Detroit News and editor of TheMichiganView.com. A Pulitzer-Prize nominated cartoonist, Payne produces five editorial cartoons a week for The News. His work is reprinted in The New York Times, USA Today, National Review, and other publications.

Craig Fahle hosts the “Craig Fahle Show” daily on Wayne State University’s public radio station WDET-FM.
