The ancients have spoken to me since I directed Sophocles’ ELEKTRA at Ramapo College, and THE WOMEN OF TRACHIS with Ellen Lanese playing all the parts in a virtuoso way that moved everyone who saw them. “Whiteness” is a foreign concept to me as a Grandfather emigrated from Italy and my Irish roots. I remember being discriminated against as a Northerner in VA and S. Carolina. We desperately need an awareness of Culture and History good and bad. There is no other.
