Friends Forum: A Series for Curious Minds, with Umbra Search
Performing the Archive: At Buffalo, The Creation of a New Musical

At the World’s Fair in Buffalo, New York, three exhibits give radically conflicting visions of blackness in America and leave behind a fragmented archive of newspaper articles, photos, and letters.

Scholar-Artist Dr. Amma Y. Ghartey-Tagoe Kootin chronicles how her national team aims to perform this archive virtually verbatim on the theatrical stage through At Buffalo, a new musical in development.
