The speakers include Robert Schmuhl, a Notre Dame faculty member and author and expert on the media and American politics, and former Notre Dame head basketball coach Digger Phelps, a longtime participant in community service efforts who currently is assisting with the “Walking to New Orleans” rebuilding project.
