"The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess: A Symposium" is a multi-day event that specifically engages with issues of race, representation, activism, and appropriation in this opera.

Our performances and discussions continue on Saturday with a recital of songs from the opera's period, a panel discussion on black performance and performativity in the early 20th century, and a panel of related student papers.
