MLK Commemorative Lecture: Yara Shahidi in Conversation

“We vote for not only ourselves, but for ‘all sons and daughters’ and every layer and intersection of identity. We vote for each other,” says Yara Shahidi. The actress is as passionate about politics as she is about her work in television and film. To wit: The star and executive producer of Grown-ish is also the founder of We Vote Next, an organization dedicated to voter education. Join for a conversation about creating culture and changing culture during these politically charged times.

This program celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and work and is supported in part by the Office of Black Student Affairs, Scripps Presents, the Katharine A. Miller Endowed Speaker Fund, the Pitzer Diversity Committee, and Pitzer Office of Student Affairs
