Augusto Boal, H. Rap Brown, and Rehearsing for Revolution (Boston, MA)

At 8 am on Thursday August 2, I'll be presenting new research at the Association for Theater in Higher Education annual meeting in Boston, MA. I'm really looking forward to this session ("Black Revolutionary Performance and the Long Civil Rights Movement"), mostly because it will feature the work of scholars I have admired for so long: Soyica Colbert, Julius Fleming, and Kevin Quashie. Set your alarm for an early wake-up if you want to know what the Brazilian director Augusto Boal has to do with black revolutionary performance.
