Marcus Granderson has written op-eds, essays, and speeches for a diverse set of clients, and under his own name. His debut literary collection, Timestamp: Musings of an Introverted Black Boy, was published in September 2019.
At West Wing Writers, Marcus’s words are spoken by foundation presidents and A-list celebrities alike. He’s worked on college commencements and corporate communication strategies, covering issues ranging from economic inequality and racial injustice to climate change and the future of work.
In his own writing and research, Marcus has extensively explored the relationship between rhetoric, race, and American democracy. He is a cum laude graduate of Harvard University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in rhetoric and oratory.
When he’s not writing, Marcus can be found cooking or hosting his seasonal podcast series, Musings of an Introverted Black Boy. He currently lives in the best borough New York has to offer: Queens.
