"Break the Silence: Face the Monster of Abuse"

When: Tue., Nov. 17, 7 p.m. 2009

You have to assume there's more than just irony in the fact that Robin Givens' speaking appearance at 7 tonight in CSU-Pueblo's Occhiato University Center Ballroom is titled Break the Silence: Face the Monster of Abuse. Many heavyweight boxers thought of Mike Tyson as a true monster after he annihilated them in the ring from the mid-1980s to the mid-'90s. But Givens knew the champion as a different kind of monster, and now the TV and film actress is sharing her story of how Tyson physically battered and otherwise abused her during their 1988-89 marriage. Givens' talk is free (719/549-2586 or colostate-pueblo.edu/studentactivities/pages/default.aspx), and the ballroom is at the center of the campus, just off Colorado Highway 47 and Bonforte Boulevard in northeast Pueblo. — Ralph Routon
