Stephanie Tang comes to the SAG Foundation after a decade of working to create social change through economic justice. Her work with unions includes running national or cross-border campaigns for the United Auto Workers, UNITE HERE and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). She has spoken about her experience building and organizing for the community before audiences at the University of California, Harvard University and the AFL-CIO. She completed her undergraduate work at the Johns Hopkins University and graduate work at the UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy.

While enrolling her pint-sized kiddo in preschool, Stephanie was astounded that education for very small children was already riddled with resource and opportunity inequities. She is trying to make a small contribution through her board service at an early childhood educational center: Friends of St. Francis. In her free time, Stephanie can be spotted running her lemonade stand/street art project #NoeSoCute. She is also the co-founder and co-steward of the Little Free Library #11288 and wishes she had more time (and energy!) to read.

BookPALS is a national program administered by the nonprofit Screen Actors Guild Foundation. BookPALS helps children learn to LOVE books by bringing the talents of performer volunteers into classrooms, shelters and other venues. Find out more at www.bookpals.net and www.storylineonline.net.

SAG-AFTRA New York Young Performers Committee Presents: The Art of the Interview, A Broadcast Mentoring WorkshopMore Info

When: 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 20
Check-in and breakfast begin at 10 a.m.

Where: SAG-AFTRA
1900 Broadway, 5th Floor
New York, NY
(Between 63rd and 64th Streets)

An audition is an interview. Meeting an agent is an interview. Learning about performers you may be working with is a form of interview. If you succeed as a performer and enter the public eye, you can look forward to any number of interviews. And if your interest is in broadcast, it is plain that interviewing skills are the bedrock of journalism on television, radio, print, and digital media.

An interview, at its simplest, is the process of gaining information and insight from a different person. It is a practice of empathy and universally valuable skill. Asking the questions or answering them comes down to being present and listening; and there are no greater tools in a performer or broadcaster’s toolbox. Be comfortable with these, and you are well on your way, wherever you are going. 

Join your fellow SAG-AFTRA young performers for an exciting day of fun, education, and networking as we learn about the skills to getting and giving a great on-air interview with some of our broadcaster members. SAG-AFTRA members ages 17 and younger and a parent or guardian are invited to this exciting mentoring event. 

In the morning New York radio/TV veteran Valerie Smaldone of 1010WINS Radio will interview Fátima Ptacek the titular voice of Dora the Explorer. In the afternoon Young Performers will work with some of the top broadcasters in their fields, including Laura Behnke (WABC TV), Jim Kerr (Q104.3), Cindy Vero (formerly WKTU Radio),  and Christina Park (WNYW TV), to learn how to interview each other and how to be an entertaining and informative guest. Young performers of all ages will benefit from this fun and informative workshop.

Parents/Guardians will follow their own track of programming in the afternoon.
Breakfast and lunch will be served. 

RSVP: Reservations are required. Click here to RSVP. Please note, due to space limitations we can only accommodate one parent per young performer.

This meeting is only open to paid-up SAG-AFTRA members in good standing. Unfortunately, no guests allowed. Parents/guardians of younger performers under 18 years old are welcome. PLEASE BRING YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARD (paid through October 31, 2014) FOR ADMITTANCE.

Ruby Dee, the groundbreaking film and theater actor, had a remarkable career that began in the 1940s, continued through the Civil Rights movement, in which she played a key role both on-screen and off, and did not end until her death at age 91 in June of this year.

Her breakthrough film role was as Ruth Younger in A Raisin in the Sun. She frequently appeared on screen and stage with Ossie Davis, her husband and artistic partner for more than 60 years, and received an Oscar nomination for her role as a Harlem drug lord’s loving mother in American Gangster. Dee and Davis received the SAG Life Achievement Award in 2000, making them only the second husband-and-wife team to be so honored.

This special tribute program will be presented with clips from her films and remarks by actors and directors who worked with Ruby Dee, including a video message from Harry Belafonte, and hosted by Ruben Santiago-Hudson. Other speakers will be announced soon.

This special tribute will take place the day after her public memorial at the Riverside Church.

The Museum is honored to be part of a series of celebrations commemorating Ruby Dee, who truly changed the picture for African-Americans on screen and in society.
