Campus to Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. on January 23

1/18/2013 —

Sharon, Pa.—Penn State Shenango will hold its annual Martin Luther King Jr. celebration with guest speaker Preacher Moss from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, January 23 in the Great Hall located on Penn Avenue in downtown Sharon, Pa. 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 stylings 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.


Moss has a notable list of television appearances: NYC Urban Comedy Festival, BET Comicview, Comedy Central, Politically Incorrect, Nightline (ABC), and 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…
