Alabama A&M University communication arts professor Susan C. Brown
(pictured, upper right corner) was seen by a nationwide audience with members of the Alabama Delegation at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., during the roll call vote.
At the DNC, Dr. Brown was delighted to discover many former and current students represented in the various state delegations. For example, AAMU alum and California delegate Eric Payne reunited with Brown at the Convention.
Payne ran against 25 other candidates for the delegate spot and credited his former professor for the inspiration to seek public service opportunities. He is currently running for the State Community College Trustee Position in Fresno, Calif.
