    Common – an Academy Award, Golden Globe, Emmy and multi-Grammy award winning artist, actor, best-selling author, and activist – will be the guest speaker for The Joseph and Sally Handleman Lecture Series.

    The event is sponsored by the Ross School of Business and is scheduled for Thursday, September 26 at Hill Auditorium.

    For the past few years, Common has been engaged in social justice and advocacy work around mass incarceration, mental health and voting. After the success and impact of his Imagine Justice concert in 2017 and his Hope & Redemption Tour to eight different prisons, Common launched Imagine Justice as a nonprofit in 2018, dedicated to leveraging the power of art to advocate for communities around the country to fight for justice and equality and to stand united against injustice wherever it appears.
