Erin Gruwell: The Original Freedom Writer
Empowering Students,
Faculty and the Community
Tuesday, November 19, at 7:30 p.m.
Hanes Auditorium, Elberson Fine Arts Center
Reception and book signing follows the talk.
Erin Gruwell has earned an award-winning reputation for her steadfast commitment to
the future of education. In 2007, Paramount Pictures released Freedom Writers, starring
Oscar winner Hilary Swank as Erin. The flm is based on The Freedom Writers Diary, the
New York Times bestseller that chronicled Gruwells extraordinary journey with 150 high
school students who were discounted by the education system.
By fostering an educational philosophy that valued and promoted diversity, she
transformed her students lives. She encouraged them to re-think rigid beliefs about
themselves and others, and ultimately re-chart their futures. With Gruwells support,
they chose to forego teenage pregnancy, drugs and violence, to become aspiring college
students, published writers and citizens for change. They dubbed themselves the
Freedom Writers in homage to Civil Rights activists, called The Freedom Riders.
Gruwell founded the Freedom Writers Foundation and published in the Freedom Writers
Diary Teachers Guide from which she currently instructs teachers around the country how
to implement her lesson plans into their own classrooms. Proceeds from the sale of her
books directly fund the Freedom Writers Foundation.
Gruwell and her students have appeared on numerous television shows, including Oprah,
Prime Time Live with Connie Chung, The View and Good Morning America. Their story has
earned them dozens of awards, including the Spirit of Anne Frank Award.
