African Americans Confront Wilson's Legacy via the Arts
In this edition of Wilson Center NOW we are joined by Blair Ruble, Distinguished Fellow and author of the new book, Portraying the Soul of a People: African Americans Confront Wilson’s Legacy From the Washington Stage. Ruble examines the Washington African American theater community’s response to systematic racism during the Woodrow Wilson administration and highlights efforts to showcase the Black experience using the arts.
