Share your passion for our community with your network and help them understand why you support Federation. Help your guests get excited for the event and create a spirit of camaraderie with your peers.

Featured Speaker: Rain Pryor

Rain Pryor is a dynamic speaker, award-winning actress, singer, comedian, two-time award-nominated author, and daughter of the late legendary comedian Richard Pryor.

 

“Fried Chicken and Latkes” is Pryor's award-winning solo show based on her life. It is a funny, irreverent and, poignant look at racism in the late 60s early 70s. She created and wrote the show and added some of her own original music and lyrics to the production. Pryor was a Los Angeles Times "Critics Choice" and her singing voice and sense of timing were hailed as rare gifts. “Fried Chicken and Latkes” played to sold-out crowds and standing ovations every night at the Canon Theatre in Beverly Hills, CA, and repeated that success at the Culture Project in New York, Chicago, Ohio, Virginia, Texas, and Scotland. She never wanted to fill her father’s shoes, nor simply mimic genius, yet she continues to honor his legacy and draw inspiration from the ingenuity and creative breakthroughs.

 

Growing up Black and Jewish gives Pryor a unique perspective on race, religion and spirituality. She shares her views and has led panel discussions on diversity in education and in the entertainment industry at Princeton University, Jewish Federation of Los Angeles, Chicago, Baltimore, and now San Diego.
