“Speaking out loud our personal stories . . . is a first step toward healing
the many divides that alienate We, the Citizenry, from each other. RACE RELAY
gives voice to those stories.”
—Candace Carnicelli, Common Peace, Center for the Advancement of Nonviolence
Explore the way race shapes our lives and our world with RACE RELAY, an interactive theatrical production. Combining recollections of real personal experiences and projected images from various media, writer-director Denise Hamilton, movement specialist Fred Sugerman, master percussionist Christo Pellani, and a cast of actors will create a dynamic performance based on stories from the USC community. RACE RELAY is a vulnerable, humorous, and real look at one of the defining aspects of our society and our individual lives.
Admission is free. RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. RSVP beginning Thursday, January 10, at 9 a.m.
Follow-up community dialogues will offer a space for open reflection on identities, attitudes, and feelings about race. RACE RELAY is a vulnerable, humorous, and real look at one of the defining aspects of our society and our individual lives (see our event calendar).
