Episode 11- Black Lives Matter

This week on AURORA CONNECTS, Josh and Dawn are joined by Bay Area actor Aldo Billingslea (DRY POWDER, COLLAPSE) and playwright Vincent Terrell Durham. We'll open the episode with a timely discussion about the many protests against racial injustice and police brutality that have been happening since last week and continue today. We'll also catch up with Aldo and Vincent, and chat about POLAR BEARS, BLACK BOYS & PRAIRIE FRINGED ORCHIDS, Vincent's play about gentrification, white fragility, the Black Lives Matter movement, and police violence against black men.
