Ifa Bayeza, Playwright, “Emmett Till Trilogy”

Listen to the show here.

Renowned Playwright Ifa Bayeza offers us such insight and interesting background on her “Till Trilogy” of plays (“The Ballad of Emmett Till,” “That Summer in Sumner” (world premiere), and “Benevolence.” Summaries of each play, the unique link to another play she was writing that served as the impetus to write this series, what she learned about Emmett Till through her research, and her hope for audience member actions after seeing the shows are some of the topics covered. Also, as part of an Embracing Arlington Arts Theater Educational Podcast Series being released next month, what are her views on the issue today and how do we keep the conversation going.
