dc.descriptionIn this presentation based on an article, it discusses an interview with the playwright Naomi Wallace and the historian Marcus Rediker, and examines the ideological and aesthetic motivations shared between the two writers and how Marxist humanism guides a new co-writing project titled "The Return of Benjamin Lay." After describing Benjamin's life and abolitionist activism, an explanation of the two writers' continued collaboration and shared dramaturgy shows how both writers find Benjamin a worthy subject to adapt for the stage.en_US
