We hear an illuminating discussion that took place last Saturday at Everyman Theatre as part of their World of the Play series. The topic was Race and Representation: “Our greatest accomplishment. Our greatest shame.” Our exceptional panel of guests shared their commentaries on race, theatre, and film, drawing from the current production at Everyman, By the Way, Meet Vera Stark by Lynn Nottage. You will hear from: playwright and dramaturg Jacqueline Lawton, who was named one of the top 30 of the nation’s leading black playwrights by Arena Stage’s American Voices New Play Institute; Dr. Kimberly Moffitt, professor of American Studies at UMBC and author of Blackberries and Redbones: Critical Articulations of Black Hair/Body Politics in Africana Communities; and Otis Cortez Ramsey-Zoe, Lecturer of Theatre Arts at Howard University and Associate Artistic Director at banished? productions.
