MASTER OF CEREMONIES

Erika Alexander is beloved for her iconic acting roles as Maxine Shaw (Living Single), Detective Latoya (Get Out), Cousin Pam (The Cosby Show), Linda Diggs (Wu-Tang: An American Saga), Barb Ballard (Run the World), and many more.
 
Erika wears many hats, including actress, trailblazing activist, entrepreneur, creator, producer and director—one of the country’s boldest, most daring, and powerful voices. As co-founder of Color Farm Media, she is on a mission to bring greater equity and inclusion to both media and electoral politics.
 
Color Farm Media, self-described as the “Motown of film, TV, and tech,” develops and produces scripted and non-scripted content for all platforms. Color Farm’s documentary film, John Lewis: Good Trouble, won the NAACP Award for Best Documentary and was nominated for three Emmy Awards.
 
A sought-after speaker, Erika delivers keynotes on topics including leadership, communications and performance, and diversity and inclusion. Born in Winslow, Arizona, Erika grew up in Flagstaff before moving to Philadelphia.
