Doug Glanville’s life experiences have helped countless Americans open up about race relations and shared humanity, but perhaps less known are his frequent and significant intersections with the Connecticut legal community.

In a conversation Thursday, the Philadelphia Phillies veteran, author and baseball commentator reflected on some of the knowledge he’s gained and wisdom he’s shared, which he’ll convey in a public talk Nov. 14 at the University of St. Joseph in West Hartford.

Some West Hartford residents may wish to forget the infamous incident in the winter of 2014, in which Glanville was profiled by a West Hartford police officer while shoveling snow in his own driveway. The officer—out of his jurisdiction—demanded identification, and eventually the exchange ended up in a widely circulated piece Glanville wrote for The Atlantic, “I Was Racially Profiled in My Own Driveway.”
