Description
Compassionate and challenging conversation around today's issues

Can we really look past race? When actors of color are cast in roles traditionally reserved for whites, does the story change? Is it ever okay to cast a white actor in a role intended for a person of color? Advocates of colorblind casting claim increased diversity on American stages. Critics see a dangerous rewriting of history. Join us for a conversation with directors, actors, and critics about the politics of colorblind casting. Join us for a conversation about how we learn to know ourselves through race. Penumbra’s Let’s Talk Series creates space for compassionate and challenging conversations around issues of social justice, equity, and the arts. Hosted by Sarah Bellamy, the event begins at 6:00pm with refreshments and light bites, followed by a 90-minute presentation and discussion.
