Filmmaker Spike Lee visited Columbus earlier this week, not only to accept the Wexner Prize at a private reception Monday night, but also to meet with Ohio State and area university students, the local media, and for a public conversation with author and musician James McBride. A scheduled gathering with nearly 1,500 area high school students was unfortunately canceled due to a snow day, but will be rescheduled.
