Season 69 / Mainstage

Athens Vignettes: A Dialogue with the African American Community

  • Writer: Roshaunda McLean
  • Director: Freda Scott Giles
  • Playwright Roshaunda McLean has taken interviews with Athens community members and turned them into three scenes that express views from the African American community in Athens about the Baldwin Hall burial site, the loss of Linnen Town and the relationship (or lack thereof) between the African American segment of town and the UGA gown.  Each scene will be performed and then discussed with the audience.  There is hope that the community will feel listened to and heard, and that a new day of relationship is dawning.  Actors will come from the Town and Gown family and from the Athens community.
