Roger Guenveur Smith, the award-winning playwright and actor, will be performing Otto Frank, a one-person performance based on the well-known story of Anne Frank, on October 22. Of special concern for Smith is the figure of Otto Frank, Anne's father, who would bring her diary to the world. Following Smith's performance, a panel featuring Thomas Doughton, senior lecturer in CIS; Edward Isser, W. Arthur Garrity, Sr. Professor in Human Nature, Ethics, and Society; and Theresa McBride, professor of history; will join Smith and moderator Mark Freeman, Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Society, to explore the profound complexities entailed in the creation of both individual and collective memory.
