Torch Songs for the Talented Tenth: An Edu-taining Evening with Nik Walker and Pals
Are you that person who just LOVES classic rock and soul? Are you always out looking for fresh stories, and unique perspectives?
Were you the only Black kid in your all-white town, who internalized the pressure to both speak for and stand out from your race- all while dodging prejudice, navigating cultural expectations, and building a career in entertainment?
If you answered “yes” to all three, then you might just be Nik Walker, star of Hamilton, Ain’t Too Proud, and “Law and Order SVU” that one time for like 30 seconds. Join Nik and his friends, from Broadway and beyond- including James Monroe Iglehart, Krystal Joy Brown, Chris Jackson, and Sasha Hutchings, to name a few- as they reflect on the hilarity of their lives as artists of color, while sharing the songs that have gotten them through the hardest days.

Nik Walker is an actor, writer, cinephile and theme park nerd, who’s been doing the Broadway thing for a decade and counting. Currently on Broadway as A. Burr in that Hamilton skit, he’s also the co-host of the arts/activism show “The Chaos Twins,” and his movie podcast, “Little Justice,” is streaming where ever podcasts are imbibed. In the free time between all of this, Nik is a highly unqualified adjunct professor at NYU. @nikkywalks
