Distinguished Lecturer Series<br>Playwright, Actor, and Educator Anna Deavere Smith<br><i> Engaging the World, The Role of the Artist in Society</i>


Anna Deavere Smith uses her singular brand of theatre that blends performance art, social commentary, journalism, and intimate reverie to explore issues of community, character, and diversity in America. Best known for crafting more than 15 one-woman shows drawn from hundreds of interviews, Smith turns these conversations into scripts and transforms herself onstage into an astonishing number of characters. In this virtual conversation, Smith will discuss the many complex identities of America, and interweaves her discussions with portrayals of people she has interviewed to illustrate the diversity of emotions and points of view on controversial issues.
