Process Series: “They Do Not Know Harlem: In Communion with James Baldwin”

September 25, 2020 @ 7:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until September 26, 2020

The Process Series will present a live-streamed, staged reading of They Do Not Know Harlem: In Communion with James Baldwin, a play created, choreographed, and performed by Tristan Parks, and directed by Kathy Williams.

Who do we turn to during a global pandemic? Who is it that we turn to when there are political uprisings domestic and abroad for black lives? They Do Not Know Harlem: In Communion with James Baldwin is a homecoming that finds Tristan Parks alongside his community summoning the spirit of James Baldwin to excavate the idol of race and the disillusionment of white supremacy. How does one’s black and queer life define “home” in relation to the Western World? Baldwin’s voice demands that Tristan grapples with ghosts of his own history and invites the audience to bear witness.

This live stream is part of the UNC Process Series and is co-sponsored by Playmakers Repertory Company and the Department of Dramatic Art.
