Joining Bob Mann is George Street Playhouse Director of Education and Outreach Jim Jack for a discussion of the production of “American Son”.
Written by Christopher Demos-Brown “American Son” is the story of an estranged couple that are called to the police station after their teenage son is detained. The play has been described as a highly-charged drama. It explores assumptions and sparks conversations about race and similar events that have occurred across the country.
From politics and religion to race, education and healthcare, Humanities Connection brings together some of New Jersey’s most fascinating scholars, authors, filmmakers and educators in conversation about critical topics facing our state, nation and world. Sponsored by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities and broadcast on WFDU (89.1 FM), Fairleigh Dickinson University’s public radio station, Humanities Connection, hosted by Bob Mann, airs the last Sunday of each month at 8 a.m.
