Richie Jackson

Date: Thursday, August 13, 2020
Time: 7:00pm ET

Join us for an intimate conversation with award-winning Broadway producer Richie Jackson (left) to discuss his book Gay Like Me: A Father Writes to His Son. Richie will be joined in conversation by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jonathan Capehart (right). This conversation will feature special guest host Evangeline Morphos.

Gay Like Me is a celebration of gay identity and parenting, and a powerful warning for his son, other gay men and the world. Jackson looks back at his own journey as a gay man coming of age through decades of political and cultural turmoil.
