Here’s a press release for what sounds like a pretty cool event featuring famous U-M athletes.

The Black Male Athlete. “Who is He and What is He to You?” Save the date for the screening of ESPN’s 30 for 30 Fab 5 documentary at 6:30 p.m., Feb. 8, in the Trotter Center Lounge. Be sure to stay for the Q&A session with members of the Fab 5 immediately following the screening. Food will be served.  

The next day, the Trotter Multicultural Center with Black Business Undergraduate Society present the 3rd annual W.M. Trotter Lecture at 6:30 p.m., Feb. 9 at Robertson Auditorium in the Ross Business School. This year’s theme will highlight the narratives of black male athletes past and present. The keynote speaker will be Ray Jackson, one fifth of U-M’s Fab 5; he will be joined by former NFL wide receiver Braylon Edwards and current U-M wide receiver Maurice Ways. During the lecture, we will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Fab 5, who changed the trajectory of collegiate basketball.
