About This Show

Commissioned by Center Theatre Group, Of Equal Measure provides an illuminating perspective of the Woodrow Wilson presidency as viewed through the character of Jade Kingston, an African American stenographer working in the White House. Jade witnesses first-hand the paradox of Wilson bringing the United States into the "Great War" in order that "the world be made safe for democracy," while trampling civil rights at home by ordering the segregation of black federal employees and imprisoning individuals critical of the war effort. The effects that these actions have on Jade, her job, her family and her country fuel a compelling story that resonates socially and politically today.
