Tomorrow, August 28th will see one of the most anticipated events of NYU Welcome Week 2013: NYU Portraits. This is the fifth year of this spectacular program, which is organized by the Center for Multicultural Education & Programs and the NYU LGBTQ Student Center and co-sponsored by the Center for Spiritual Life. NYU Portraits is an evening of dramatic readings focused on social justice and diversity, produced by the non-profit arts and education organization Voices of a People’s History, and based on the work of the late historian and NYU alumnus Dr. Howard Zinn (1922–2010).
This year’s cast features rapper and producer Darryl McDaniels, member of the pioneering hip-hop group Run DMC, actor Eddie Kaye Thomas, best known for his roles in the American Pie and Harold & Kumar series, along with other artists and actors, NYU faculty, alumni and students.
The event starts at 8pm, and doors open at 7pm. This is an event you will not want to miss, so make sure you get there early!
