Southern Writers Onstage: Beyond Black and White series
This series of readings/performances tells the stories of the contemporary South, and the diverse southerners who make it an interesting place to live, through the writings of southerners who claim heritage beyond black or white. Atlanta actor Ryan Vo presents excerpts from John Jung’s memoir Southern Fried Rice: Life in a Chinese Laundry in the Deep South, and Eddie Huang’s memoir Fresh Off the Boat.
All performances take place at the Balzer Theater at Herren’s (the first LEED-certified theater in the United States and Atlanta’s first restaurant to integrate its tables voluntarily), home of Theatrical Outfit, at 84 Luckie Street, Atlanta. Events are free and open to the public. Southern Writers Onstage was developed by Dr. Pearl McHaney of Georgia State University.
This event is supported by a grant from Georgia Humanities.
