Plenary Session: Social Justice and Equality
Tuesday, July 12, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Working from a script of To My White Friends That Know Me, written by Deborah L. Plummer and directed by Tony F. Sias , is a 25-minute vignette from a three-act play, designed as Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) Edutainment. Through engaging, substantive, and often humorous dialogue, audiences are kept actively engaged and ready to participate in the post-show discussion facilitated by Dr. Plummer.
To My White Friends Who Know Me is brought to LHAT by Karamu House, the oldest, producing African American theatre in the nation and in partnership with Getting To We, Inc. Karamu House stands tall in our nation as an inclusive institution that has served as a common ground for Cleveland’s diverse community since 1915. Getting To We’s initiatives and programs serve to incubate new ideas for building social trust as the bedrock of a healthy society and a foundational aspect for achieving equity. Audiences of the performance will leave with information and inspiration…achieving racial equity one friend at a time.
