Dr. Kenneth Warren, the Fairfax M. Cone Distinguished Service Professor in English at the University of Chicago, and an expert on American and African American literature from the late 19th century through the middle of the 20th century, shares insights about urbanization and the Black creative voice, including a conversation with Professor Adrienne Brown, author of The Black Skyscraper: Architecture and the Perception of Race and Associate Professor in the Department of English. Court’s Resident Artist Ron OJ Parson, a leading interpreter of Wilson’s work, will join Dr. Warren in this conversational, intimate look at the American Century Cycle and one of America’s most essential classic playwrights, examining excerpts of Wilson’s work and their impact on generations of Black artists.
