"Our theme this year, ‘Bring On the Light,’ is a hopeful request for the emergence of possibility following the darkness of the past year. It bodes well for all that there’s talent like Kemp — one of my favorite Moth storytellers  and Ms. King in the world. Both stand as powerful examples of how storytelling helps forge powerful connections and creates greater empathy and understanding. They inspire and engage us all."

Catherine Burns, Artistic Director, The Moth

"Every year at The Moth Ball, we honor extraordinary individuals who are contributing to storytelling in persistently bold and exceptionally enlightening ways. There are no better recipients for this award than Regina King and Kemp Powers – who have done so much to elevate more inclusive and diverse stories through their brilliant and important work. We’re thrilled to celebrate both of them on June 22nd!"

Sarah Haberman, Executive Director, The Moth
