Roger Guenveur Smith: "Performing History"
Roger Guenveur Smith will perform his newest work, "Performing History", inspired by his undergraduate studies at Occidental College in the American Studies Department.
As an undergraduate, guided by his mentor, Professor Mary Jane Hewitt, Roger spent an unforgettable evening in the company of his beloved teacher, and her good friends Maya Angelou, James Baldwin, and Roscoe Lee Browne. After a casual evening of spending time with all of them, Roger felt inspired to pursue a career in the arts.
"Performing History" is a commemoration of these four incredible people and the possibilities that emerge when the humanities intersect with the arts and social sciences.
