Renée Elise Goldsberry, the Tony and Grammy award-winning star of the Broadway musical “Hamilton,” will speak and perform at Wake Forest University on Feb. 1.
The event — which kicks off international conference “The Arts of Leading: Perspectives from the Humanities and Liberal Arts” — is free and open to the public, but online registration is required.
Registration does not guarantee admission. Seating will be first-come, first-served.
Goldsberry, known for originating the role of Angelica Schuyler in “Hamilton,” will share her personal story and how her experience performing has shaped her vision for arts and leadership.
Goldsberry, 48, is also known for her roles in other Broadway productions, like “The Lion King,” “Rent” and “The Color Purple,” and was recently featured in the Netflix series “Altered Carbon.”
“From roles in ‘Hamilton,’ to Shakespeare, Renée Goldsberry’s example shows all of us how theatre, music, dance, history, literature, and art can reshape our moral imaginations and empower us to lead with character and courage,” said Wake Forest University President Nathan O. Hatch.
“Her presentation and this conference will showcase how the rich and diverse perspectives of the humanities and liberal arts can enliven and expand our understanding of leadership.”
