Prejudice and ambition are uneasy bedfellows in Trouble in Mind written in 1957 and set to perform at the Josephine Louis Theatre from May 16 – 25. But is fame worth more than perpetuating a stereotype? Do the same racial boundaries still exist today in American theatre? Student cast members will perform a scene from the show, followed by a community discussion hosted by Tim Rhoze, Artistic Director of Fleetwood-Jourdain Theater. Participants include members of the cast of Trouble in Mind, directorRon OJ Parson, Court Theatre Resident Artist, and Dino Robinson, Founder of Shorefront Legacy Project. The event is free and open to the public.  It will be held at the Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center, located at 1655 Foster Street in Evanston.
