Reginald Edmund, Idris Goodwin Stage Black Lives, Black Words

Playwrights Reginald Edmund (above) and Idris Goodwin

In this episode of The Scene, I am joined by two writers from the Black Lives, Black Words international theater movement, which assembles nights of theater across the world with Black writers responding to the question “Do Black lives matter today?” The project has so far extended to Chicago, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Cleveland and London, with more cities to come. Reginald Edmund, my guest in part one, is the Managing Curating Producer of Black Lives, Black Words, and in part two of this episode I speak with writer, rapper and essayist Idris Goodwin whose work is also featured in the project.
