Melvin Johnson Ted Talk - Athletes in the Criminal Justice System

Last November, Melvin Johnson started his junior season scoring 23 points and shooting 5-11 from three against Tennessee in VCU's season opener. VCU went on to win 85-69, video of that performance is <a href="http://www.vcuramnation.com/2014/11/video-vcu-uses-strong-first-half-to-rout-tennessee/">available here</a>.  Literally the next day, he gave a Ted Talk at VCU's TEDxVCU event about an experience visiting a correctional facility. Talk about versatility.

TEDx just got around to posting the video, we're excited to share it with you:
