Spectrum Dance Theater: A Rap on Race

Friday, October 12 through Saturday, October 13

Dance Theatre University City & West Philly

Nearly 50 years ago, two towering public figures, African-American author James Baldwin and white anthropologist Margaret Mead, sat together and recorded an epic and intimate seven-and-a-half-hour conversation about race in America. Now, choreographer Donald Byrd and playwright Anna Deavere Smith re-imagine that conversation in the present inĀ A Rap on Race. This new dance-theatre work combines text with movement and music to communicate the complexities of talking about race, at a time when that conversation is as necessary as ever.
