Comedian Preacher Moss to perform at Coastal Feb. 19

February 8, 2002

The multi-talented Preacher Moss - comedian, writer, filmmaker, activist - has earned a national reputation as one of the top lecturers on the college circuit for his unflinching take on racial issues. Moss' 2002 lecture tour, "End of Racism," will come to Coastal Carolina University's Wheelwright Auditorium on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. as part of the university's African-American Celebration. The event is free and open to the public.

Moss has been described as an "undercover agent for social change" who leads audiences, through laughter, to a deeper understanding of multiculturalism. Using humor to illustrate a serious subject, Moss focuses on the distinction between racial understanding and racial interaction in today's society.

"No matter how unflattering or funny it is, we must investigate to find truth in the world," says Moss. "I believe that we are all one family, but ignorance and indifference make it seem like some of us were adopted. Understanding diversity and multiculturalism requires that we eliminate or reduce ignorance, and learn to speak honestly when we can't."
