WBEZ Presents: An Evening with Billy Dee Williams

Join legendary actor Billy Dee Williams for a conversation about his new memoir What Have We Here?, which recounts his journey from Harlem to a galaxy far, far away — and beyond.

Best known for his role as the Star Wars universe’s first Black character (Lando Calrissian), as well as his roles in films like Brian’s Song and Lady Sings the Blues, Williams went on to become the suave spokesperson for Colt 45 malt liquor and portrayed Harvey Dent in Tim Burton’s Batman. Celebrate Black History Month as Williams looks back on an acting career that broke racial barriers.

WBEZ is proud to partner with Exile in Bookville for this event.

One pre-signed copy of What Have We Here is included with each ticket purchase.
