ESPN announcer and SU grad (’84) Sean McDonough spoke at Newhouse School of Communications on Friday.

Veteran sports journalist Sean McDonough has covered everything from the Olympics and The Masters to the World Series. On Friday, he advised SU students to get as much practical experience as they could on the Hill and early in their careers. And although he graduated 30 years ago, he still finds himself rooting for SU when they are televised (but not when he’s doing play-by of course).

McDonough called today’s SU v. Miami game with Kara Lawson.

Journalist and author Michele Norris was the featured speaker for the 30th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration at Syracuse University.

Michele Norris was a great selection for last night’s program at Syracuse University because Dr. King was all about fostering conversations about subjects such as poverty and social justice.

Listen below to hear Norris, joined by the Say What ensemble, read statements from The Race Card Project (some submitted from Syracuse).

We found out about last night’s march for social justice via social media (Thanks Dave Tobin). The multi-generational, multi-cultural group of peaceful (but vocal) protesters began their journey at Hendricks Chapel, marched through campus (with a brief pause at Bird Library), then despite the wind chill near 20 degrees, hopped on the Connective Corridor before hitting Harrison Street, and eventually occupying a portion of Downtown Syracuse.

In appreciation for the march and the movement, with end with an album that was recorded on this day during the height of the Civil Right Movement (see below).
