Description: Film screening followed by moderated discussion with playwright Keith Hamilton Cobb

An 85-minute solo play written and performed by Keith Hamilton Cobb, "American Moor" examines the experience and perspective of black men in America through the metaphor of William Shakespeares character Othello. Writes "New York Review of Books," The performance becomes by turns a working actors autobiography, an exploration of Americas relationship to Shakespeare, a performance of a radically reconceived Othello, and [a] clear-eyed account of an African-American mans experience of the United States. Rewarding to those familiar with Shakespeare but also accessible to anyone with questions making art, representation, or how rules constrict the roles we play, "American Moor" is a heartbreaking, funny, provocative account of the stories we tell about race.
