Welcome back! Here’s the rundown for today’s episode: In Segment #1 I’m going to answer last week’s Black Theatre trivia question and provide a little historical context. Then I’ll give you this week’s question. In Segment #2 I will introduce this week’s Black Thought. This week’s quote by Audre Lorde best frames the theme of the episode. Finally, in Segment #3, I’m going to look at the recent protests for greater equity and inclusion in American society that have spilled over into the American Theatre.
