Program on Capt. Walter Dyett

I'm trying to find someone who could present a program about Capt. Walter Dyett and his influence on the careers of great musicians who graduated from Phillips and DuSable High Schools. This program would be for a group of older adults at our Mather's--More Than a Cafe located in the Chatham neighborhood on 83rd Street. We are scheduling programs now for October, November, and December. The program would be for about an hour on a Friday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. If you know someone who might be interested in talking about the life and career of Capt. Dyett, please contact me by phone or e-mail

Thanks for any help you can provide!
