WAYO "Up Close and Cultural' host Rachel DeGuzman discussed black women in the United States, a white supremacist patriarchal society, and theatre that does not harm them. Historically and today. This expansive conversation was inspired by the recent controversy about the play "Thomas and Sally" and the courageous, savvy, collective response from a group of San Francisco Bay Area Black women theatre makers. This episode was part 2 of a continued conversation that featured special guests Kaja Amado Dunn and Reenah Golden.
