The “End of Racism” is not just the name of the tour, but a commitment that we all share. Preacher Moss knows how to deliver the goods on how we see race through race through laughter, respect and the humility of a man who felt the sting of racism.
“Understanding diversity and multiculturalism requires that we eliminate or reduce the anxiety of our ignorance and how to speak honestly when we can’t,” Moss said.
Moss is bringing his message to Lake Region State College at 7:00 pm Thursday, February 13th in Robert Fawcett Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
Preacher Moss is clearly the new prototype for the comedian of these times and the times to come. A writer for “The Damon Wayans Show” and “Saturday Night Live,” his comedy styling are distinguished for being sculptured out of the everyday relevance of life and the rare glimpses of truth we value as reality.
He is intellectual, yet humble.
He is charismatic and dynamic, but does not have to demand great attention or time because his audiences come to cooperatively listen, laugh and in “special” moments, reflect.
Truly this is a rare combination. He is more than a comedian, priding himself on being just a man. Viewed, respected and revered as a man of the people, his words carry life and just as importantly, they carry laughter.
Armed with sincerity, intellect and rare comedic ability, Preacher Moss is the “End of Racism” Comedy and Lecture Tour. “Speaking on Truth,” Moss has been playing to the hearts and minds of college students and administrators all over the country. With his insight on “racial understanding vs. racial interaction” he has quickly become the funniest social commentator on the college scene today.
The “End of Racism” is not just the name of the tour, but a commitment that we all share. Preacher moss knows how to deliver the goods on how we see race through race through laughter, respect and the humility of a man who felt the sting of racism for not just blacks, but whites, gays, Latinos, as the poor and the underclass of America.
Moss has a notable list of television appearances: NYC Urban Comedy Festival, BET Comicview, Comedy Central, Politically Incorrect, Nightline (ABC), Latino Laugh Festival. He has performed with many artist greats including Maya Angelou, WAR, The Last Poets, Stanley Clarke, George Lopez, Darryl Hammond, Chris Farley, George Wallace, Will Durst, and many more.
The event is sponsored by LRSC Student Senate and Diversity Committee. The event is free for all students and community members.
