He worked as a staff reporter for The New York Times from 1981 through 1987. He currently writes the column “On Religion” for the Times and from 2004 through 2008, he wrote the “On Education” column, which won first prize in the Education Writers Association’s annual competition.

In addition, Freedman is the author of seven books. His most recent work, Breaking The Line: The Season in Black College Football That Transformed the Game and Changed the Course of Civil Rights, was released this year.

Some of his other books include:  Letters To A Young Journalist, an instructional manual on how to be a reporter; Small Victories: The Real World of a Teacher, was a finalist for the 1990 National Book Award, and The Inheritance: How Three Families and America Moved from Roosevelt to Reagan and Beyond, a 1997 Pulitzer Prize finalist.

The event will include a presentation by Freedman, and a 15-minute question and answer session. The program, which was made possible by the Center for Literature and Theatre @ MDC,  is free and open to the public.
