RIVER FOREST, IL - Renown CNN and ESPN columnist LZ Granderson will present "Boxes are for Shoes: Understanding our Multiple Identities" at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 21, in the Lund Auditorium of Dominican University, 7600 W. Division, River Forest. Granderson, an award-winning journalist, commentator and sports writer, is a respected voice in the LGBT community, and also speaks on issues of gender, identity, sexuality and race.

Granderson identifies as African-American, openly gay, Christian and a father and lives by the mantra "boxes are for shoes." He will discuss what this means in the context of his multiple identities and how individuals, too, can better understand the intersections of their various identity markers.

The lecture, which is sponsored by Dominican University's Division of Student Affairs, is free and open to the public.
