The new film adaptation of August Wilson’s play Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom stars the late Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis and is coming soon to Netflix.

Listen to cast members Colman Domingo, Glynn Turman, and Michael Potts as they explore Wilson’s work, their roles, and this upcoming release adapted for the screen by playwright, director, and actor Ruben Santiago-Hudson. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Men of Change: Power. Triumph. Truth., which profiles Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Wilson. RSVP for Zoom instructions.
