The Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, literary scholar, and cultural critic presents an unforgettable evening of profoundly moving stories from his latest curated work, The Portable Nineteenth-Century African American Women Writers, and contemporary authors who walk in the footsteps of these remarkable trailblazers. With performances by Danielle Brooks (Orange Is the New Black, The Color Purple), Crystal Dickinson (Clybourne Park, The Good Wife), and more!

Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The Selected Shorts podcast consistently ranks as one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.

Actors subject to change.
