"Unmasking Empathy: A Staged Reading of Jackie Sibblies Drury's Play We Are Proud to Present a Presentation..." Join us for a staged reading performed by Williams student actors followed by a group discussion of African American dramatist Jackie Sibblies Drury's 2012 Obie-award winning play We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South-West Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915. The play tracks the chaotic attempt by an ensemble of six actors to empathize with the both the victims and perpetrators of a historical genocide without stirring up their own histories of racial prejudice, privilege, and violence. Sponsored by The Department of Theatre, with special thanks to the '62 Center Staff.
