NTOZAKE SHANGE: COMMUNITY THEATER FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE ACTION CONFERENCE KEYNOTE ADDRESS
FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 2018
South Bend Civic Theatre is proud to be a part of the Inaugural Conference on Community Theater for Social Justice Action in partnership with InterAction, the Civil Rights Heritage Center, IUSB Women's and Gender Studies, and ND Show Some Skin. The purpose of this conference is to create a space for deep strategizing among experts - community theater-makers, radically inclusive theater-makers in traditional theaters, community organizers, artist activists, and others.
The Keynote speaker for the conference will be Ntozake Shange. Poet, novelist, playwright, and performer, Ntozake Shange is perhaps most famous for her Broadway-produced and Obie Award-winning play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow Is Enuf. She has also written numerous works of fiction, including Sassafras, Cypress and Indigo, Betsy Brown, and Liliane. As a self-proclaimed black feminist, she addresses issues relating to race and feminism in much of her work.
This event is open to the public. Tickets are available here.
Information on the Sunday, April 29th performance of "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow Is Enuf" at South Bend Civic Theatre can be found here.
