In her recently released collection of essays, Walking in My Joy, award-winning actress Jenifer Lewis brings readers on her personal journeys across the globe, from Cape Town to Bali; Washington, DC, to the Serengeti; Mongolia to St. Petersburg; and Argentina to Antarctica, demonstrating how she walks in her joy by seeking pleasure in everyday encounters. Known for her role in ABC’s Black-ish, Lewis’ newest book not only explores her identity as a performer, but also her journey into activism and mental health, and shares lessons she has learned along the way. 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. 

All attendees are kindly asked to wear a face covering over their nose and mouth in indoor spaces for this program.
