Julius Fleming, associate professor of English at the University of Maryland, discusses how theater — like television and photography — was vital to the civil rights movement. He explores how Black artists and activists used theater, including plays like Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun and Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, as a way to demand “freedom now.” Fleming also considers how Black artists and activists used these strategic performances of waiting as radical acts of patience. Fleming will host a book signing at the conclusion of the lecture.
