Laverne Cox

Ain't I A Woman: My Journey to Womanhood

8:00 p.m. | Thursday, April 4

Hall Auditorium
101 S. Campus Ave

Actress Laverne Cox rose to fame with her role as Sophia Burset on Orange Is the New Black, becoming the first openly transgender person to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in an acting category. As Cox says, "My life changed when I realized I deserve to be seen, to dream, to be fully included, always striving to bring my full humanity."

With various 'firsts' in her already impressive career, the Emmy-nominated actress, documentary film producer and prominent equal rights advocate, continues to make history in her career and significant strides in her activism. An advocate with an empowering message of moving beyond gender expectations to live more authentically, Cox's speaking engagement is guaranteed to be thought-provoking and emotionally compelling.
