The Niceties by Eleanor Burgess, begins when Zoe, a black student at a liberal arts college, is called into her white professor’s office to discuss her paper about slavery’s effect on the American Revolution. What begins as a polite clash in perspectives explodes into an urgent debate about race, history, and power. Directed by Gabriella J. McKinley, recently seen as Celie in THE COLOR PURPLE (SGT’s 2023 collaboration with Ujima and Shea’s 710).
