WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Conciliation Project presents Unmasking: Stories and Truth, a workshop infused with the principles and practices of its signature Ritual Poetic Drama methodology. Unmasking: Stories and Truth will present an excerpt of our original production Uncle Tom Deconstructed followed by a facilitated dialogue. The workshop examines how "Uncle Tom" is used as a weapon of both racially motivated respectability politics and dehumanization of black bodies. Media images, stereotypes, and grotesque representations shape our ideas of race, class, and culture. We all have a story.
