Moderated by Jazmine Hughes
Known for her breakout roles in the critically-acclaimed The Handmaid’s Tale and Orange Is the New Black, Samira will talk about her career, share her experience as an actor and woman in the entertainment industry, and discuss how she has recently become a model for young people around the world, championing the rights and safety of the LGBTQ community and people of color.
As part of its "Get With The Times" series, the Times is hosting viewing parties on college campuses across the nation in an effort to connect with its younger audiences and bring people together to discuss critical issues facing our country today. At Amherst, we'll be streaming the conversation live at the Powerhouse and providing a space for students to have discussions related to topics covered during the event.
There will be free food and New York Times swag, and students will have the opportunity to submit questions to Samira through our "Get With The Times" social media promotions.
Make sure you bring your student/staff/faculty ID — we'll be checking in attendees on the Times' GWTT website.
Doors open at 7:45 p.m. Invite your friends!
For any questions or concerns, email Shawna Chen, New York Times collegiate event coordinator at Amherst, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
