Kerry Washington in “American Son”

The "American Son" team on racism in the U.S.

Nikole Hannah-Jones, investigative reporter at The New York Times, moderated an important conversation with some of theater’s most timely and directional voices – Kerry Washington, an award-winning actor and producer, Kenny Leon, a Tony Award-winning Broadway and film director, Steven Pasquale, an acclaimed stage and screen actor, and playwright Christopher Demos-Brown.

Washington and Pasquale star in American Son, a gripping tale set in a Florida Police Station, chronicling two parents looking for their missing teenage son. Watch a conversation about who we are as a nation, and how we deal with family relationships, love, loss, and identity.
