Rochelle Riley, who writes weekly about social, political and cultural issues for the Detroit Free Press, is this year’s commencement speaker. Ms. Riley has won many state and national honors, including Four Michigan Associated Press Editorial Association Awards for best column writing and the 2011 Salute to Excellence Award for Best Column Writing from the National Association of Black Journalists.
