CommonCOLUMBUS, Miss. -- Common, a multi-Grammy Award-winning hip hop artist and actor, is participating in a broadcast event sponsored by The W chapter of the National Society of Leadership and Success.

 

The presentation, “The Greatness in You,” will broadcast Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 6 p.m. in the Nissan Auditorium, Parkinson Hall. He will teach attendees how to seek their own directions for success.                

As an actor, Common has portrayed a freed slave, Elam Ferguson, in AMC's historical drama series “Hell on Wheels.” For the past 16 years, he has produced more than nine albums, including “Can I Borrow a Dollar?” and “BE The Dreamer/The Believer and Finding Forever,” a Grammy-nominated collaboration with Kanye West. He also appeared in several movies, including “Smokin' Aces,” “American Gangster,” “Terminator Salvation,” Happy Feet Two” and many more.

He is the author of several books, including “One Day It'll All Make Sense.” In 2007, he launched the “Common Ground Foundation,” an organization dedicated to the developing opportunities for America's urban youth.

“The NSLS is important to me because I want to help in building leaders who can create a better world,” said Quinterra Wright, president of the National Society of Leadership and Success.
The mission of the organization seeks to help people discover and achieve their goals. The Society offers lectures from the nation’s leading presenters and a community where individuals come together and help one another succeed.
