Readings from OyamO’s 'I Am a Man': April 3, 4, 5

Students from THA 106 will read select scenes from Charles “OyamO” Gordon’s I Am a Man on Wednesday, April 4, at 6:30 p.m. at the Buffalo Center for Arts and Technology, in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King Jr.

Playwright Charles F. "OyamO" Gordon is a professor emeritus at the University of Michigan. His critically acclaimed I Am a Man is a powerful play about the sanitation workers' strike in Memphis, Tennessee, which eventually brought Martin Luther King Jr. to that fateful city. A discussion and activities regarding the issues of racial and social justice will be included in the performance.

Because of limited seating at the Buffalo Center for Arts and Technology, the Buffalo State community is encouraged to attend either of the on-campus readings of I Am a Man on Tuesday, April 3 (Act I), or Thursday, April 5 (Act II), during Bengal Pause (12:15–1:30 p.m.) in the Savage Building's Flexible Theatre. Funding for these readings is provided by an Equity and Campus Diversity Program Grant. For more information on the readings, please contact Patrick Moltane, lecturer in the Theater Department.
