Brilliant Lecture Series: Russell Simmons
Say the words "hip-hop mogul," and Russell Simmons immediately comes to mind. But the Def Jam founder and creator of Phat Farm has some heady interests beyond music and fashion - he's a passionate advocate for veganism and human-trafficking education. Simmons, a recently appointed U.N. Goodwill Ambassador, will share some of his thoughts on culture, success and global issues with Houstonians as part of the Brilliant Lecture Series. 2:30 p.m. Arena Theatre, 7326 Southwest Freeway. For tickets and information, call 713-974-1335 or visit www.arenahouston.com. $20 to $150.
Sat., Sept. 19, 2:30 p.m., 2009
