Friday, October 30, 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, October 31, 2:00 p.m.: "Exhibit Noir," devised by Faith Parris ‘24. "Exhibit Noir" depicts a Black museum, exploring blackness in the arts while focusing on the white gaze. Parris incorporates Paul Lawrence Dunbar’s idea of “the mask” and other original poetry. The piece will consist of four consecutive dances that serve to tell a story through the African Diaspora.

Saturday, October 31, 7:30 p.m.: The American Slavery Project’s "In the Parlour" by Judy Tate, directed by Carley Robinson ‘21. "In the Parlour" takes place on March 1, 1913, on the eve of what was to become the most historic Women’s Suffrage march in history. The African-American activist Mary Church Terrell negotiates with white suffragette, Alice Paul, who has organized the march but is unwilling to allow African-American women to participate. A hundred years after the passing of the 19th Amendment, "In the Parlour" is a stark portrait of the ways Black women were central to the fight for women's suffrage despite being sidelined and excluded by white women in the movement. In an election year, Tate's play reminds us that voting has not always been (and still is not) a right for all people, and how invaluable this privilege is.
