Antigone Panel Discussion:
Conversation on Mental Health in the Black Community
Thursday, March 24, 2022
This virtual event will be live streamed via ZOOM and will be recorded for on demand streaming after the event has ended.
This event is free and open to the public, however, advance registration is required.
In conjunction with our production of Antigone, CPH hosts an open dialogue on mental health in the Black community. CPH's production of the Greek tragedy features Black actors in roles steeped in suicidal ideation and other mental health crises. In our own world, community stigma and systemic inequity in healthcare remain persistent struggles to those Black Americans confronting mental health issues. As we endeavor to portray these experiences and their intersectional impact responsibly, we hope this dialogue provides one space for thoughtful listening and reflection. Join us for this conversation between three Black professionals with backgrounds in mental health and suicide prevention, as they share personal and professional insights on this pressing issue.
