Anna Deavere Smith created a new theater form through her interview-based solo shows. Fires in the Mirror, on the 1992 Los Angeles riots, earned a Pulitzer Prize nomination; and her piece Let Me Down Easy was broadcast on Great Performances after a national tour. She has appeared in Nurse Jackie, The West Wing, and others. This 2012 National Humanities Medal winner and Founding Director of Anna Deavere Smith Works will highlight her social and political efforts. Her presentation coincides with MSU’s 60/50 Project, a community conversation on civil and human rights.
