Roger Guenveur Smith – <i>Frederick Douglass Now</i>

Roger Guenveur Smith – Frederick Douglass Now

Roger Guenveur Smith presents his internationally acclaimed solo performance, Frederick Douglass Now, a work the Los Angeles Times calls “a personal benchmark for this remarkable artist.” Smith delivers a monologue that mixes Douglass' 19th-century editorials, speeches, and letters with his own original writing. Standing in front of an American flag and using poetry, music, and rap, Smith riffs on not only slavery but modern-day racism, blurring the lines between history and right now.

Please note: This performance includes mature content.
