Her lectures on the power of race and representation have been presented throughout the country illuminating the ways in which images, narratives and media influence perception and shape lives. She is a leading facilitator in coalition building efforts to address inequities in philanthropy and theatre.
CTFA is delighted to sponsor her Keynote as an all-convention event for AATE. The keynote presentation is funded, in part, by the Alvin Cohen Memorial Fund of the Children's Theatre Foundation of America, designed to encourage and support exceptional programs at national theatre conferences. Mr. Cohen served the theatre field professionally and philanthropically. He was a trustee of the Children's theatre Foundation of America, for which he established the Alvin Cohen Fund. The Cohen family continues this fund in his memory.
