Amanda Seales of HBO’s insecurity will be the guest for a virtual event hosted by USC.

Amanda Seales is a comedian on an HBO show, a talk show host, creator of her own game show and host of a popular podcast.

Now, she’s going to be a guest speaker at a University of South Carolina virtual event that’s part of Black History Month and an ongoing effort to understand and better represent people of color in media and entertainment.

“Very few people that have navigated the space the way she has,” said Dr. Jabari Evans of the University of South Carolina College of Information and Communications. “She’s pretty much permeated every level of mainstream media.”

Seales will be the guest during a conversation about diversity and inclusion in the entertainment industry, Evans said.

During the event, Seales and Evans will discuss representation of people of color in media, social media, entertainment and how to navigate those fields. They will also have a discussion on what inclusivity and equity means in media, Evans said.
