Co-sponsored: Race and Waste in an Aluminum Town
This oral history-based performance examines the history of a North Carolina aluminum town–or, really, two towns: Badin and West Badin. In addition to the personal losses experienced by the residents of these towns, the play reveals how discriminatory practices of pollution and toxic waste disposal produced disparate health outcomes for the residents of these primarily white and primarily black southern towns. We salute the courageous and compelling work of our 2016-17 McColl Fellow, Pavithra Vasudevan, as well as the community participants who had the courage to share their stories. Shows on Friday at 8:00 pm, Saturday at 8:00 pm, and Sunday at 2:00 pm.
