An evening with Common

7 p.m. 9 p.m. PT

Bovard Auditorium

Join us for the 2nd annual Charlotta Bass Media Trailblazer Speaker Series at USC. This year’s honoree is the award-winning artist, actor, author, and activist Common. In his new book, And Then We Rise: A Guide to Loving and Taking Care of Self, Common draws on his own experience of pursuing wellness as a crucial element of his success. The Charlotta Bass Journalism and Justice Lab — USC’s first Black media studies center — salutes Common’s messages of health, hope and healing. The conversation will be moderated by USC Annenberg associate professor, Bass Lab founder and award-winning author Allissa V. Richardson, and will be introduced by Vice Provost for the Arts Josh Kun. Admission is free.
