With various showtimes this month, Seattle Repertory Theatre is pulling out all the stops with its show A Rap on Race, which centers on a now legendary recorded conversation between the anthropologist Margaret Mead and the writer James Baldwin.

The Seattle Repository Theatre’s website describes the event thusly:

Donald Byrd (Tony Nominated/Bessie Award Winner) in collaboration with Anna Deavere Smith (Pulitzer Nominated/MacArthur Winner) will use various renditions of this dramatic conversation between these two singular 20th Century voices. A Rap On Race will re-energize the current conversation around race in America, and challenge the conventional borders between live dance and theater.

Tickets for the event can be purchased online and go for $40 ($30 for seniors, $20 student rate).
