My Black Girls’ Journey

Thursday April 25, 5:30pm

York St John University Creative Centre

Debra Ann Byrd in conversation with Dr Anne-Marie Evans, Head of Humanities, York St John University

Free to attend, please book here

In her dynamic solo show, Actress, Director and founder of Harlem Shakespeare, Debra Ann Byrd, explores the collision of her personal story with that of the iconic Shakespearean role of Othello.

Defying those who told her that she could never be a Shakespearean actress, Debra Ann is now a lauded and honoured member of the international Shakespeare Community.

Here, in conversation, she talks about her life and career, and her Black Girl’s Journey.

This is a free festival event, with a Q and A at the end of the session.
