Highlighting: August Wilson (Giving Voice)

Students in our Acting One class have been getting to know some of August Wilson's characters as they work on performing a monologue from one of his ten century-cycle plays. Inspired by students featured in the compelling Netflix documentary "Giving Voice", we decided to carefully and thoughtfully engage with his words through classroom performance. 

Acting creates a natural pathway for engagement and empathy, and this has been a great way to step inside someone else's shoes as we explore African-American history in the 20th century through performance.
