  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

‘What Would You Do’ host to speak on campus

Emmy Award-winning journalist John Quiñones will spend two days speaking at the University beginning Wednesday evening.

Quiñones, co-anchor of ABC news magazine “Primetime” and host of the series “What Would You Do?,” will visit the University in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy.

He will speak Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Union Ballroom and again on Thursday at 9 a.m. in 101 Olscamp.

Open to the public, Quiñones will present “What Would You Do? A 20/20 Vision of America” on Wednesday. Doors open at 6:30. In the event of a packed ballroom, attendees can fill the Union theater to see the speech streamed online. The talk will also stream for Firelands students.

After the presentation, the audience may ask questions. Quiñones will sign copies of his book, “Heroes Among Us: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Choices,” following the event.

The event is a collaboration among many campus departments, including the Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Office of Equity and Diversity, said Barbara Waddell, chief equity and diversity officer.

“Celebrating and remembering the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King has always been important to Bowling Green State University,” Waddell said. “[Quiñones’] story really does speak to the legacy and vision Dr. King had for this country.”

His Thursday presentation will cater more to students interested in a career similar to his, Waddell said.

Quiñones is perhaps best known for hosting, “What Would You Do?,” a hidden-camera show in which actors stage public scenes of illegal or contentious activity to see if and how bystanders react. Quiñones appears at the end to interview them about their reactions.

“It really does demonstrate in this country, we have some real heroes,” Waddell said of the show. “People willing to stand up.”
