Race On The Stage

Theater professor Eric Levin discusses race and theater in history and the present.

Can you imagine a white actor playing a part in blackface in today's world? 

That change is one example of the evolution of attitudes toward race in America. 

And entertainment has been part of the change. 

Southern Oregon University's exploration of its campus theme, race, includes a discussion with Oregon Shakespeare Festival performers about racial attitudes, on- and off-stage, historically and currently.
