In her recent memoir, Debra Lee explores the joys and challenges of being a high-powered Black woman executive in the entertainment industry. As an incredible glass-ceiling breaker and the woman who brought timeless television shows like The Game and Being Mary Jane to cable, Lee has been the visionary responsible for elevating Black images and storytelling for decades. In I am Debra Lee, the author shares her own story in an intimate and eye-opening tale about her career in entertainment. Michel Martin, weekend host of NPR’s All Things Considered, will moderate the conversation. Signed books will be available for sale courtesy of Smithsonian Enterprises.
