What does it mean to live in a post Jim Crow South? What values or traditions, do you carry, that are influenced by where you live? Join us for a community conversation as we take a deeper look into our collective past, evaluate our present, and hope for our future. Dallas Theater Center's Diane and Hal Brierley Resident Acting Company members Alex Organ and Liz Mikel will discuss their experiences, and how they have informed their approach to the characters they portray in this world premiere play. Moderated by Amber Sims, this thrilling exploration of advantage and what happens "when tradition is sacred, and change is slow," will challenge us all to identify the privileges we possess and the opportunities we have to embrace equity.
