Black Lives Matter Movement

I had been creating performances based on actual events…performances that evolve from interviews I conduct with individuals directly or indirectly involved in the event I intend to explore. Basing my scripts entirely on this interview material, I perform the interviewees on stage using their own words. Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992 is the product of my search for the character of Los Angeles in the wake of the initial Rodney King verdict…” – Anna Deavere Smith Write at least 500 words on your post-film thoughts. Take your time and respond thoughtfully. If you do any additional research (recommended), please cite the research in MLA-style at the end of your initial entry. Now start with any thoughts you might have regarding the readings? What did you think of the form of the play (a documentary solo)? What did you like or respond to (or not) regarding the video performance? Is there a character she played you related to? Is there one that you despised? Found interesting? And, most importantly…, Why did you feel that way? How did this form compare to the many other plays we read/watched during class? The play and the events surrounding the play take place almost 20 years ago. Do you think things have changed during that time? What comparisons can/do you find with the Black Lives Matter movement?
