An Artist's Life In Deaf And Black

Join deaf actor, dancer, and choreographer Christopher Smith for an afternoon of conversation and performance about his life and career as a performing artist, his triple identity as Deaf, Queer and Black, and growing up Black and Deaf in America.

Mr. Smith has worked in many stage and dance productions including, "Deaf Side Story," and "Ain’t Misbehaving." He has appeared in independent films by directors Jade Bryan and Zeinabu Irene Davis.

Mr. Smith will also perform excerpts from his current one-man show, "Lena & Me," about how the work of pioneer performer and civil rights activist Lena Horne helped him to discover his true self.

Simultaneous interpretation in American Sign Language (ASL) and English will be provided.
