GRiT: Legacies of Slavery in Plays by Black British Women Playwrights

When:
Venue: Online

This talk explores how legacies of slavery are represented in contemporary Black British women’s plays and performances. I consider how and why slavery is represented today and explore examples of plays that illustrate how Black women playwrights connect the past to the present by exploring important historical incidents with reference to contemporary concerns. I will suggest that these contemporary plays bear witness to the past while empowering Black women in the retellings of these stories in the present.
