Shocking the Masses: Voodoo Macbeth and the Genius of Orson Welles

Dr. Sharron Greaves, Ph.D.

Orson Welles never did anything small. From his infamous 1938 radio controversy, to screen immortality with 1941’s Citizen Kane, he revolutionized American popular culture. Dr. Greaves will examine Welles lesser known “Voodoo Macbeth,” an early endeavor pairing Shakespeare with an all-black cast in the heart of Harlem, shocking the masses, but offering black actors the opportunity to demonstrate their talents during the Great Depression. There will be 30 minutes of Q&A. Dr. Greaves is Associate Professor of Communications.

All students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend.
