Join NHPR and The Music Hall on Tuesday, February 2 at 7 p.m. for a virtual event relating to our ongoing national conversation around racial justice, equity and inclusion, this time through the sharing of a personal New Hampshire story. The latest edition of Writers On A New England Stage will feature award-winning author, podcast host, and Black cultural critic Rebecca Carroll in an intimate and virtual format.
Rebecca Carroll will discuss her powerful new memoir Surviving the White Gaze, which recounts her painful struggle to overcome a completely white childhood in rural New Hampshire in order to forge her identity as a Black woman in an overwhelmingly white culture. NHPR's All Things Considered host Peter Biello will hold a virtual conversation with Rebecca, including questions from the online audience.
- Please purchase your tickets online here or by calling the Music Hall Box Office at 603-436-2400. Prices vary by the package purchased, starting from $5 per ticket.
- Read our official announcement.
- The event will be held via the Crowdcast platform, and will last about one hour.
We hope you can join us for an important conversation.
