McCarter Theater’s acclaimed August Wilson play, “The Piano Lesson,” continues to February 7, and we have an unusual opportunity to talk about it after the matinee on Saturday, February 6. McCarter partners with Not in Our Town to facilitate a 90-minute Community Conversation. For tickets and reservations for the free discussion call 609-258-2787 or go to www.McCarter.org. To hear a little bit of the wonderful “railroad song” click here.
The Community Conversation will focus on the story of The Piano Lesson “as an articulation of black American experience through which issues and themes pertaining to race, racism, and racial oppression and injustice can be shared and explored for meaning and understanding.”
NiOT (to which PUMC belongs) is the interracial, interfaith social action group united to advance the cause of racial justice in Princeton.
NiOT holds a monthly Continuing Conversations on Race, held on first Mondays at 7 p.m. in partnership with the Princeton Public Library. These forums offer a safe and friendly atmosphere to talk about issues of relevance to our community and nation. Or, “continue the conversation” by perusing Not in Our Town Princeton’s blog, which offers commentary from various points of view http://niotprinceton.org.
