Psychotherapist, activist, and playwright, Clare Coss will present a dramatic reading of “Dangerous Territory,” her play about Mary White Ovington cofounder, with W.E.B. DuBois, of the NAACP. Ovington, rebelled against the expectations of her family and became the first white woman in 20th Century America to dedicate her life to racial justice.
This play, Julian Bond (head of the NAACP) wrote, “puts history, hope and a wrongfully unknown early heroine of the civil rights movement on the stage.”
Blanche Wiesen Cook will lead discussion following the reading.
