A regular recap of the achievements and published works of the faculty and professional staff at Franklin & Marshall College
Visiting Scholar of Africana Studies Amanda Kemp will have her play with music, "Emancipation Sweet," performed at the Philadelphia Fringe Festival on Sept. 21. A recipient of a grant from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, Kemp’s play, which chronicles the journey of a 13-year-old boy who loves basketball but hates history, especially because his name is Emancipation, named for the Proclamation. To accompany the play, Associate Dean for Multicultural Affairs Marion Coleman will provide jazz and spirituals and Senior Adjunct Assistant Professor of Music Michael Jamanis will perform ragtime and European classical music on the violin.
Visiting Assistant Professor of Theatre Jon Foley Sherman's show, "This Is Not For You," was performed in September at the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, where it was chosen as the Best Bet at the festival. According to Sherman, "This Is Not For You" asks a question with ever-greater consequence in our interconnected age: Is it possible to be alone?
