Lena Waithe in Conversation

September 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
Garrison Theater
Scripps College, 241 E. 10th Street
Claremont, CA 91711 United States

Actress, producer, and screenwriter Lena Waithe was the first black woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for Netflix’s Master of None. Her award-winning episode, Thanksgiving, was a poignant take on Waithe’s own experience coming out to her mother. Now, the Out100 Artist of the Year is turning her creative energies toward three projects: The Chi, written by Waithe and produced by Common; a comedy called Twenties with TBS; and a film, Queen Slim, starring Daniel Kaluuya of Get Out fame.
