The Marc Steiner Show

Renowned Shakesperean actor Ira Aldridge, born in New York City in 1807, spent much of his life on the stages of Europe, leaving the United States because of the discrimination black actors faced.  We discuss his life and legacy with Kwame Kwei-Armah, Artistic Director at Center Stage.
