Baron Kelly, University of Wisconsin Professor, will discuss his life path, from growing up in the streets of New York to becoming a global artist who graces the world's stage. His professional career began by singing with the Metropolitan Opera and evolved into a four-time world-traveled Fulbright Scholar, enabling him to bridge ethnic divides as a cultural specialist for the United States. Kelly trained at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and holds a PhD in Theatre from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is a published author and sits on numerous editorial boards including The Harold Pinter Review and the Comparative Drama Conference.
