My one-woman show gets an extended run at The Marsh Theater in San Francisco starting two months from today. I am very honored to have a chance to present my play to Bay Area audiences.
Following each show, I will be joined by various talkback guests (listed below). These thought leaders -- activists, lawyers, professors, writers -- will be discussing various subjects related to social justice, and answering questions. Grateful to live in a community where folks from all racial and ethnic backgrounds work side by side to tackle the most intractable problems that disproportionately affect marginalized communities.
Together. United. We are changing the world.
Closer to the dates of their appearances, I'll post more info about these guests.
