UW Whitewater is preparing to step into the national spotlight this week.
A horde of media is expected to descend upon the small college town Tuesday, when Ward Churchill takes the stage.
He's the controversial University of Colorado professor who—six months ago—was invited to talk about racism involving American Indians.
Since then, other schools have cancelled Churchill appearances in light of his essay comparing the victims of the World Trade Center attack to Nazis.
The Whitewater appearance has spawned debate over whether it represents free speech or hate speech.
