Join the Corita Art Center as they welcome Roxane Gay, an award winning journalist and author, and Abbi Jacobson, an American comedian, writer, actress and illustrator, as they chat about creativity, community engagement & political activism to addressing inequality, justice, compassion, and love, introduced by fine artist and author Lisa Congdon. The Great Humans Series is inspired by artist and activist Corita Kent’s “Great Men” lecture series at Los Angeles’ Immaculate Heart College from 1964-1968. The Great Men series featured leading artists, activists, and scholars, including John Cage, Charles Eames, Buckminster Fuller, Peter Yates, Virgil Thomson, Daniel Berrigan, Josef von Sternberg, and Alfred Hitchcock. This contemporary reboot will continue quarterly in honor of Corita Kent’s legacy.
