Artist, author and entrepreneur, Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons, front man of the hip hop group Run D.M.C., will present "A Conversation with Rev. Run" as part of the 2014-2015 Excellence in Leadership speaker series

One of the most influential men in American pop culture, Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons knows how to leave a legacy. After all, as the front man of seminal hip hop group Run-D.M.C., Simmons is widely credited for ushering rap music into mainstream culture. But Simmons’ influence hardly ended with Run D.M.C. He also built a fashion empire, wrote three bestselling books, starred in multiple successful television shows and became a spiritual leader and source of inspiration for his millions of fans. Simmons has gracefully transitioned into a spiritual thought leader, making immense contributions to music, fashion and television along the way.
