The daylong event on February 23 will explore the play's political and artistic sides. The symposium will begin at noon at New World Stages and finish at the Neil Simon Theatre with an event that includes the play's cast and creative team.

Previously announced participants include historian Doris Kearns Goodwin and civil rights leader Bob Moses.
