S2 Ep 16: LIVE at Victory Gardens Theater: 7 Black women and 1 White man
We're LIVE at Chicago's Victory Gardens Theater with a group of Black actresses kicking butt on Chicago stages. They share their personal stories, answer Paul's "I've always wanted to ask...", get real about non-traditional casting, teachable moments and self-care. @19:07 there's a searing story from actress Tiffany Ogelsby about being called the n-word and @39:40 Tania asks the group how they feel about playing a maid. We touch on theatre but really we explore navigating life as Black women in 2018 and @53:28 we address the trickiness of intersectionality. And Paul is the example of an ally in action. Featured: Tiffany Ogelsby, Tamberla Perry, Celeste Cooper, Caren Blackmore, Ericka Ratcliff and Bethany Thomas.view more
