Crossroads Antiracism Organizing and Training is a nonprofit organization founded in 1986 to develop new directions in understanding and combating the root causes of institutional racism. We are proud to present Todd Logan's play, Defamation, as our fundraiser this year.
Here’s the story….
A professional African-American woman is invited to the home of a successful Jewish man for a potential business project. After the meeting he realizes that his family heirloom watch is gone.
Hereby hangs the story of DEFAMATION, wherein this very dilemma leads to a riveting courtroom encounter that illuminates our common perceptions about race, religion and class.
The case is not a simple “he said, she said.” There are twists and turns that keep the audience on their toes. As audience members and then jurors, we learn as much or more about ourselves as we do the plaintiff and the defendant.
Following the play, Crossroads will lead a brief discussion and share more about our work.
