Facing Our Truth- Short Plays on Race & Privilege.
Date(s) - Monday, February 9, 2015
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
For the Facing Race Conference in Dallas, the SMU Meadows Arts + Urbanism Initiative in partnership with the Dallas Theater Center and numerous local theater companies came together to honor life in the face of these tragic instances of death and injustice. We gather as a community again on Monday, February 9 to read these moving works in their entirety in partnership with Dallas Faces Race in the spirit of continuing dialogue around racial justice and equity in Dallas.
Facing Our Truth is a series of short plays originally commissioned by playwright and producer Keith Josef Adkins of the New Black Fest in an effort to promote action and discussion around the verdict of George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin.
