Latasha Lamont had a chance encounter with celebrity Toure' on Cheyney University's campus on Saturday morning, April 21. "I was excited to meet and speak with Toure after Dr. Vital introduced us. Toure took time to meet with students after his presentation when he stressed the importance of the upcoming Presidential election as he urged students to participate in the political process as active citizens." 

Toure', known as a novelist, music journalist, cultural critic and essayist, was on campus as part of a voters information forum and registration drive.  He was invited by the Delaware Valley Pennsylvania Chapter of The Links, Inc.
