Race and Racism in Grand Rapids: An interview with playwright Stephanie Sandberg
Today, we interviewed Stephanie Sandberg, Calvin College Professor and playwright of the important work Seven Passages: The Stories of Gay Christians.
Stephanie’s new play entitled lines: the lived experience of Race was the subject of our interview. We discussed her motives for exploring the issue of racism in Grand Rapids, what she learned from the process, how racism manifests itself in today’s Grand Rapids and her hopes for this new work to contribute to the necessary dialogue that needs to take place for racial equality to truly exist in this community.
