About this episode:
Living in the aftermath of the Ferguson rebellion means that there is almost a never ending barrage of well-meaning attempts to “reconcile the community and the police.” When I heard of a New York production’s staged reading that was titled “Antigone and Ferguson,” (being performed in ferguson) I was intrigued. I mean, the resonance is obvious. It is about a woman whose loved one’s murdered body was left in the street. But when I heard that Samira Wiley, most recently of Orange is the New Black, was reading the part of Antigone, I knew I couldn’t miss it.
