The Friends discuss two plays that deal with police brutality: “Pass Over” and “American Son,” plus an interview with the star of the new Jeremy Hersh film.
Right now, if you’re feeling comfortable, it means you’re not doing enough. Sit with your discomfort. Let the discomfort propel you to act and fight for a better world for everyone.
The Friends sit down and discuss Black Lives Matter and the protests that have erupted around the world. They also discuss how different brands have released statements to support BLM, including Broadway shows and theater companies across the country, though some of these statements have been better than others.
