Mark H. Presentation of THE WAY OF THE NEOGRIOT: A Journey Towards a True African-American Theatre

The African Studies program Africa at Noon series featured Theatre and Drama faculty member Mark H. presenting The Way of the NeoGriot: A Journey Towards a True African-American Theatre on March 24.

In this presentation – part personal narrative, part artistic statement – theater artist and UW-Madison professor, Mark H. (a.k.a. The NeoGriot) offers a special glimpse into his life and work as he recounts how the empowering journey to uncover and reclaim a lost personal history led him on a mission to draw on that same history in developing his own unique African American theater, one firmly rooted in and guided by both African and American philosophies and practices.
