Sixth & I (In-Person and Virtual)
In Conversation with Tiffany Cross
- This event has passed.
Spend an unforgettable evening with Leslie Jones and get to know the woman behind the laughs: tough yet full of love, uncompromising yet wise, and always completely hilarious.
Jones’ audacious new memoir, Leslie F*cking Jones, is a love letter to regular people just trying to make it day by day. Her story is proof that if you fight for yourself, you can live a bigger life than you ever imagined.
When Jones discovered comedy, everything in her life changed. While hitting the road as a working comedian, and holding down regular jobs to fund her dreams, she found herself fighting prejudice, tough crowds, stupid bosses, and people who thought a Black woman could never be funny enough. Through it all, Jones proved herself time and time again – from nights at clubs across the country, through hit TV specials, to six years at “SNL.”
Get ready to laugh out loud and be inspired during this honest and revealing conversation with the one and only Leslie Jones.
Jones will be in conversation with Tiffany Cross, a journalist who has reported for MSNBC, BET, and CNN. She is the author of Say It Louder!: Black Voters, White Narratives, and Saving Our Democracy.
