Black Acting Methods: HBCU Campus Book Tour – Saturday, February 25, 2017 

Sharell Luckett’s Black Acting Methods offers a range of alternatives to the Euro-American performance styles with which many actors find themselves working. These approaches are rooted in a critical framework that allows Afrocentric sensibilities and experiences to excite and invigorate approaches to performative scholarship. A wealth of contributions from directors, scholars, and acting practitioners of color address Afrocentric processes and aesthetics, and responses from key figures in Black American theatre illuminate their methods. This ground-breaking collection is an essential resource for teachers, students, actors and directors seeking to reclaim, reaffirm or even redefine the role and contributions of Black culture in theatre arts.

Charles Winter Wood Theatre – 12 p.m.

515 Orr Dr | Tallahassee, FL 32307
