A Private Conversation in Public
The Right to "Remain" Silent vs the Right to Fully Express
Six Black men, all creative professionals, discuss amongst themselves a question: What expression, however pressing, however relevant, do we make public, and what are we liable to encounter as a consequence? Relating to the BSO’s performances of Anthony Davis’s You Have the Right to Remain Silent, panelists include the Pulitzer Prize Winner Composer Anthony Davis, Shakespeare and critical race studies scholar David Sterling Brown, Ph.D.; actor and community arts advocate Terrell Donnell Sledge; Emmy nominated actor Keith Hamilton Cobb; a recognized leader in the Boston arts and theatre scene, David C. Howse; and NAACP Theatre Award winner Robert Manning, Jr. We invite the BSO audience to be present and to listen to them as they discuss the nuance between public expression and consequences as it pertains to racial injustice: The Right to "Remain" Silent vs. The Right to Fully Express.
