The Arts & Social Action: 'The Raid'
Please join us as we reflect on our shared national history and the challenges of our new year with a virtual reading of the play ‘The Raid’ followed by a community conversation.
“The Jan. 6 attack on the capitol conjured up the events of my play, The Raid, which explores abolitionist John Brown’s failed insurrection of 1859. In his two meetings with Frederick Douglass, the two debated the best tactics to achieve a more just nation. The Arts and Social Action series is one of our platforms to respond and react to national events through conversation and presentation. We quickly assembled an impressive multi-national team led by brilliant director Tiffany Nichole Green to create a digital reading of The Raid. Please join us as we reflect on our shared national history and the challenges of our new year.” – Idris Goodwin, Playwright and Director of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College
A digital reading of The Raid will be available to view on the FAC website until 6 p.m. MST on Thursday, Jan. 14.
Watch the production, then join us for a community conversation with the playwright and special guests.
