A former producer of ABC's "20/20," Crossley was nominated for an Oscar for her work on the PBS documentary series "Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Years," which earned an Emmy Award, an Edward R. Murrow Award and an Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia Award, among others.

Crossley will be on campus for a weeklong visit as St. Ambrose's 2013 Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow.
The Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellows Program was established in 1973 to encourage the flow of ideas between the academic and non-academic sectors of society. Public lectures are a key part of this prestigious program.
This lecture is part of St. Ambrose University's "Race Matters," a year-long series to examine pressing dilemmas and facilitate the difficult conversations, including the idea of race as an invention that serves the ideology of states and economies worldwide.
