Lonnie Rashid Lynn, commonly known as Common, will pay Eastern Michigan University a special visit for a lecture and book signing for his recently released book One Day It'll All Make Sense. His book is a gripping memoir, both provocative and funny. Common shares never-before-told stories about his encounters with everyone from Tupac and Biggie to Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela. Through it all, Common emerges as a man in full. Rapper. Actor. Activist. But also father, son, and friend. Common’s story offers a living example of how, no matter what you’ve gone through, one day it’ll all make sense.
