Making a Way Out of No Way

February 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

My story is not a single story, but a series of connected narratives, woven together into one life. ~ Arnold T. Grisham

More than a mere autobiography, Making a Way of No Way details the life and experiences of a child born to a working-class Black family in Chicago’s West Side during the 1940s. The crucible of Arnold Grisham’s family and Chicago’s South Side community produced a young man who, against long odds, attended and graduated from DePaul University, ultimately earning an MBA in finance. Grisham’s career in banking is a testament to his courage and commitment to breaking through racial barriers and redefining possibilities for those who would follow. It is also a personal story, involving struggle, pain, loss and renewal.
