Virtual Talk with Grace Lee
Fall Evening Seminars
 
Hear from Grace Lee, Director/Producer of And She Could be Next, a two-part program on women of color organizing for the 2018 midterm elections and combating voter suppression. Grace will also discuss PBS's Asian American series, where she also directed several episodes. How has she managed to work on two public televisions series at the same time? And how have current conditions—from BLM to the elections to the COVID-19 pandemic—impacted her and her work? Grace Lee is a TWN Workshop graduate.
