A painting of Antigone performing funeral rites on her slain brother

In early October UC Classics and the College-Conservatory of Music co-sponsored a Zoom presentation of "Antigone in Ferguson," a production by the acclaimed Theater of War. The production featured readings from Sophopcles' "Antigone" followed by a public forum which focused on relevance to today's issues of social justice. The production also featured performances by a choir composed on civic leaders from Ferguson, Missouri. The Theater of War aims to create discourse and healing regarding the death of Black Americans at the hands of the police. Dr. Brant Russell of CCM and Dr. Caitlin Hines of the Classics Department worked with Harvard, Georgetown, and Emory Universities to bring this production to students.
