Last week the University of South Florida’s Lecture Series brought in Aaron McGruder, the creator of the controversial comic strip/cartoon “The Boondocks.”
McGruder, who spoke to a gathering of approximately 500, gave no prepared speech – instead engaging the crowd in a question-and-answer session.
A more typical “lecture” presentation, especially those that command $25,000 fees, is a prepared address followed by some Q&A. To go right to the Q&A means no preparation time for that 25 K. A great deal if you can get it. He got it.
