GRCC’s 2014-2015 Diversity Lecture Series continues November 12 with author, professor and recording artist Elaine Richardson.
“Dr. E” is a professor in Ohio State University’s department of education and human ecology. Her one-woman show, “HD (Po H# on Dope) to Ph.D.: How Education Saved My Life,” features expressive performance, storytelling and music. She turned away from a life of drug addiction, abusive controlling pimps and short stints in jail by returning to school. Her motto is: “Ignorance, low self-esteem and shame are killers. When you know who you are, nobody can control you.”
Richardson’s free, ASL-interpreted lecture starts at 7 p.m. in Fountain Street Church, 24 Fountain St. NE. A book signing will follow. Parking costs $5 (with a discount pass). For details, call 234-3390. To see the other speakers in this year’s series, click here.
