In Conversation: Race, Identity & RAGTIME  | 

Jan 28 & Feb 11

Ragtime shows an America at the turn of the 20th Century. The American Dream was a promise of a new tomorrow for everyone. With a fresh start for all, regardless of race or identity, America was the new frontier. So what happened? What was next? Did it get better? How has race and identity created the country we know today? Join us for two PlayhouseTalks events to look at the 100+ years following the musical, and the real American experience.

About

The Jewish Experience in America

How has the Jewish community shaped the country?  How has the country shaped the Jewish community? Since before the turn of the 20th Century setting of Ragtime, this reciprocal relationship, and oftentimes struggle, has created a truly unique American Jewish experience.  Join us for a discussion on the impact of civic engagement, interfaith relations, cultural influence and community building on the country past and present.
