Driving Directions

James Baldwin’s Blues for Mister Charlie is an epic drama that confronts us all with the truth of just how widely we are still divided by race in America. This discussion will actively engage the audience examining the questions of race and racism as subject to our own perspective; framed by our history, cultural norms and personal experience.  The stories we know, the ones we have been told, and our lived experiences inform our beliefs and opinions about race in America no matter what the circumstance.

Can we create healing space and employ restorative practices as we endeavor to work together and move forward towards change and conciliation? 

This a collaborative program of The Conciliation Project, VCU, UR, and the African American Repertory Theatre Company. Please read Blues for Mister Charlie prior to the program. The play will be staged at UR April 18-22, 2018.

St. Mark’s is located at 520 North Boulevard in Richmond, there is ample free surface parking behind the church. For more information visit www.stmarksrva.org
