Daniel Beaty, an award-winning author, actor, and educator whose rise from a background of poverty, incarceration, addiction, and rage is chronicled in a new memoir, will speak Tuesday at the Paramount Center Mainstage. He will discuss the book, “Transforming Pain to Power: Unlock Your Unlimited Potential,” and spread his message of personal empowerment. Critics say his story of growing up in a home plagued by drug addiction and incarceration is “a triumph of faith over adversity.” Beaty, who has been an artist in residence at ArtsEmerson, graduated with honors from Yale University.
