How are people of African descent connected in the 21st century? How are black subjectivities formed? What does the African Diaspora mean now? How are these identities conveyed on and off stage? And how do performances like PASSING STRANGE help us negotiate this complex territory? Be a part of the discussion with Dr. Nadine George-Graves and others at this free event!
