2021 is really the year of TINA!
With the success of the new documentary, the attention on the Legend has grown even bigger and started a new conversation on how the world treats its heroes and the media relationship with star’s trauma.
And to get even further into the conversation, the prestigious Stanford University will hold an online webinar next month with TJ Martin & Dan Lindsay the two directors of TINA and Taro Gold who helped Tina bring ‘Happiness Becomes You’ to life.
SuperFan Ralph H. Craig III, Ph.D. candidate in Religious Studies at Stanford University got the chance to talk to them and will moderate the event!
The online lecture will take place on May 20th 2021 and if you wish to participate, you’ll first need to register by email here!
Here’s the description from the website:
As a recording artist, Tina Turner’s career spans sixty years, and most recently includes a series of interfaith albums called Beyond. For nearly fifty of those years, Turner has practiced SGI Nichiren Buddhism. In 2020, she released Happiness Becomes You: A Guide to Changing Your Life for Good (Atria), co-authored with Taro Gold and Regula Curti. This memoir details the role of Buddhism in her life and career. Her religious practice was also captured in the 2021 HBO Films Documentary TINA, which uses never-before-seen footage, audio tapes, personal photos, and new interviews, including with Tina Turner herself, to tell her story of triumph over adversity.
