Issues of Identity: In Conversation with Hilton Als


Issues of Identity: In Conversation with Hilton Als

In celebration of Black History Month, the UC San Diego Department of Theatre and Dance is pleased to announce Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and critic Hilton Als in a public event on Monday, Feb. 5 from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Mandell Weiss Theatre. The conversation will be between Mr. Als and Dr. Gentry Patrick, UC San Diego professor of neurobiology, with opportunities for questions and observations from the public. The conversation will be framed by the Department of Theatre and Dance’s new production of Lorraine Hansberry’s classic “A Raisin in the Sun.” Produced on Broadway in 1959, the play explores issues of identity that still resonate. The conversation will focus on issues of racial identity, gender and access to the American dream.
