Different Strokes Performing Arts Collective and The American Myth Center, both in Asheville, are working to locate and provide opportunities for Black Playwright's to be seen and heard. Stephanie Hickling Beckman, the managing artistic director for Different Strokes, joined WNCW to share the news about the desire to find and help emerging African American playwrights. This conversation originally aired on Feb. 18, 2022.
