LZ Granderson, journalist, commentator and sports writer, will discuss “Dare You to Move” on February 13 as part of GRCC’s Diversity Lecture Series.
Mr. Granderson writes a weekly column for CNN.com, and is a senior writer and columnist for ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com. He is a contributor to ESPN’s “Sports Center,” “Outside the Lines” and “First Take.” This former Detroit gang member rose to be selected a Hechinger Fellow at Columbia University. His commentary reaches well beyond the world of athletics tackling subjects such as use of the N-word in the black community, the presence of gays in the locker room, and the truths and lies of reverse racism. Prior to joining ESPN, Mr. Granderson was a sports columnist for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and The Grand Rapids Press.
His free lecture starts at 7 p.m. at Fountain Street Church, 24 Fountain St. NE. ASL interpretation will be provided. On-campus parking is available for $3 with a discount pass. For more information, call (616) 234-3390
