Photo Flash: The Cast Of THE DOUBLE V Shines At The Matrix Theatre
The Cast of THE DOUBLE V Shines At The Matrix Theatre. Written by Carole Eglash-Kosoff, directed by Michael Arabian, and produced by Leigh Fortier.
"The Double V" is a new play examining how a 1942 letter to the Pittsburgh Courier, asking whether black men should be asked to fight for a country that considers them "half-American," sparked the Double V campaign and, many believe, the civil rights movement.
