LZ Granderson: Chauvin Verdicts Reaction, Justice vs. Accountability, Racial and Sexual Identity

April 21st, 2021

Aron Bender talks with LZ Granderson, who can be heard on Sedano, LZ & Kap weekday afternoons 4-7 on ESPN LA 710, is the LA Times Sports & Culture Columnist, and can be seen on ABC News and other platforms. We talk about the guilty verdicts in the trial of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the differences between justice and accountability, growing up in Detroit, how he manages trauma, struggling with his racial and sexual identity, impostor syndrome, the role God has played in his life even if LZ wasn’t listening, and an unexpected deep dive into the tennis world. I'm so grateful for this conversation. Thank you, LZ!
