Kimberly Welch, UMSL assistant professor of English, explores the intersections of black experience, theater, and incarceration. The plays discussed were created in conversation with incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals. Welch describes how race, gender, and class affect engagement with the prison system and how theater can serve as a form of activism and resistance. This is an UMSL Common Read Initiative event.
