McCarter Theatre’s next production, the acclaimed “The Piano Lesson” by August Wilson, is set for January 8 to February 7. McCarter will partner with Not in Our Town to facilitate a 90-minute Community Conversation after the matinee on Saturday, February 6. For tickets to the play and reservations for the free Community Conversation call 609-258-2787 or go to www.McCarter.org.
The Community Conversation will be an opportunity to engage in a conversation that focuses specifically 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.
