651 ARTS presents Roundtable ‘63

(One Night Only!)


Friday, Feb 22  @ 7:30PM

Tickets $20

Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts LIU Brooklyn


Curated by Charles Reese


Roundtable ‘63 is an inter-generational modern day civil rights round table dialogue re-examining the relevance of the moral, social, political, educational and human rights issues of 1963 versus 2013. Utilizing a staged reading of the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway play “James Baldwin A Soul On Fire” which bears witness to the lesser-known secret meeting between James Baldwin and Robert F. Kennedy in New York City circa 1963. This unique blend of reader’s-theatre and activism serves as a tool to ignite an in-depth conversation with a cornucopia of new and seasoned civil rights architects and contemporary cultural activists exploring viable pro-active solutions to the question: “ Where Were We Then (1963) and Where Are We Now (2013)?

Panelists include Nana Camille Yarbrough (Moderator), David Leeming (Assistant to Balwin/Author, Baldwin bio), Shani Jamila (artist, cultural worker & staunch human rights advocate) and Robert O’Hara (Director/ Adjunct Professor at NYU/TISCH School of the Arts).
