Jordan Anderson Writes a Letter, a theatrical multimedia docudrama written by Professor of Performing Arts Arthur Beer, will be presented on McNichols Campus.
The work is based on a letter written in 1865 by Jordan Anderson, a freed slave, to his former master. It is noted not just for its historical value but also for Anderson's sophisticated satirical tone. See an AP story about the letter.
