PDSS Presents Clint Smith: Virtual Wabash 001, 7:30PM - 7:30PM

Clint Smith will make a virtual visit to Wabash on Wednesday evening, September 16 at 7:30 p.m., and he has been asked to “Reinvigorate Our Conversation on Why Black Lives Matter.”

 

Mr. Smith is an acclaimed poet, historian, and journalist, who was named to Forbes “30 Under 30” list. He is the author of Counting Descent, a collection of poems, and is a staff writer at The Atlantic.

 

Prior to his virtual visit, we encourage everyone to take just nine minutes to watch two short TED Talks (How to Raise a Black Son and The Danger of Silence) to have a sense of why this is such an exciting opportunity for all of us at Wabash.

 

Theater Production: The Race: Fine Arts Center T110 Ball Theater, 8:00PM - 10:30PM

THE RACE by Michael Rohd and Sojourn Theater
Directed by Heidi Winters Vogel
September 16-19, 2020

THE RACE is a performance and audience participation event about Leadership and Participatory Democracy. Wabash Theatre is reimagining and building a theatrical event in a time of Covid-19. Incorporating elements of playback theater, devised movement, discussion and listening; this event will be inclusive and open to perspectives and experiences while simultaneously maintaining a space that is anti-racist and anti-hate.   

In this era of increased partisanship and division, THE RACE is investigating how theater can promote an active conversation about leadership and campaigns - a race to discover what binds us together as well as what tears us apart.
