Flannery, ‘Revelation,’ and Race
April 29 @ 6:00 pm EDT
The Francis and Ann Curran Center for American Catholic Studies at Fordham University Presents:
Flannery, ‘Revelation,’ and Race: an Audio Drama and a Contextual Conversation
Thursday, April 29, 2021
6 p.m. EST
Moderated by Curran Center associate director Angela Alaimo O’Donnell, Ph.d.
Panelists: Professor Mark Chapman, Ph.d. (Fordham University), author William Eric Waters, director Karin Coonrod (Yale), and actor KenYatta Rogers (Montgomery College)
This contextual conversation, which will take place as a webinar, will begin with an audio stream of theater company Compagnia de’ Colombari’s latest work in development, a stage production of “Revelation,” Flannery O’Connor’s powerful story about race in the American South during the Civil Rights era. Afterwards, four distinguished panelists will engage in a contextual conversation around O’Connor and race.
This event, the first of a series of contextual conversations, is part of a project to build support for the future stage production of “Revelation.” These contextual conversations, by engaging directly with the issues surrounding the author’s views on race, are designed to build engagement and support for the fully staged production of the drama. The conversation will be recorded for archival and educational purposes.
Free and open to the public. Registration is required. A Zoom link will be sent upon registration. For more information, or to RSVP, email [email protected]
