Different Kind of Winning: Betts, Jackson, Shropshire
Toward A Different Kind of Winning: Nurturing Black Creativity and Masculinity

Join the Center for Imagination in the Borderlands, Global Sport Institute and the ASU Art Museum as we welcome Reginald Dwayne Betts, 2021 MacArthur Fellow and Founder and Director of Freedom Reads, a program which harnesses the power of literature to counter what prison does to the spirit. Betts will be in conversation with ASU Professor of Creative Writing Mitchell Jackson and adidas Distinguished Professor of Global Sport and CEO of Global Sport Institute, Kenneth Shropshire. Together they will engage the importance of articulating and making legible the many languages and stories that carry us through our most painful and joyful moments, our defeats and victories. It will be our luck to experience one of the many fields of strength and care that emerge when Black creativity and masculinity are nurtured together, in story and language, in friendship and in being alongside, through the thick and the thin, toward something that outlasts winning.
