“The Master’s Tool” – Black Theatre Matters, Ep. 103

Black Theatre Matters is a podcast designed for you. It is designed to be informative, exploring new works, as well as interviews with Black Theatre artists and organizations. We promise thoughtful commentary on trending issues, principles of the art form, and ideas underlying Black Theatre.

Here’s the rundown for today’s episode: In Segment #1 I’m going to answer last week’s Black Theatre trivia question and provide a little historical context. Then I’ll give you this week’s question. In Segment #2 I will introduce this week’s Black Thought. This week’s quote by Audre Lorde best frames the theme of the episode. Finally, in Segment #3, I’m going to look at the recent protests for greater equity and inclusion in American society that have spilled over into the American Theatre.
