Come join us to participate in an
invigorating discussion, book signing and reception event to celebrate the book premiere of “The Pulse of Perseverance,” hosted by Xavier University of Louisiana’s Office of the President Reynold Verret.
Written by three Xavier graduates Dr. Pierre Johnson, Dr. Maxime Madhere and Dr. Joseph Semien, the book details the three men’s struggles to overcome the obstacles of poverty, inadequate K-12 educations and family dysfunction as they pursued their dreams of becoming doctors.
The forum will also highlight
the role that Xavier University of Louisiana, which sends more black undergraduates on to become doctors than any other
college in the country, played in their success.
