Winston Duke’s Distinguished Speakers Series lecture has been rescheduled to Nov. 4.

The first Distinguished Speakers Series lecture has been rescheduled to Thursday, Nov. 4 after being postponed last week due to undisclosed circumstances.

Winston Duke, a UB alum and actor featured in blockbuster hits like Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” and “Us,” was set to kick off the 2021-22 series on Oct. 14, but requested the cancellation with “no explanation,” according to associate director for national/international media relations Doug Sitler.

This is not the first time a DSS lecture has been rescheduled. A November 2014 lecture by John Oliver was also postponed due to bad weather. 

Duke will speak in the Center for the Arts Mainstage Theater on Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. Tickets are still available for purchase; tickets bought for the original date will be honored, while those who are unable to attend the rescheduled lecture can request a refund. 

The following lecture is scheduled for Nov. 16 and will feature Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman.
