In recognition of the National Day of Mourning/Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, we are examining how British colonialism impacted the depiction of people of color in Shakespeare's work.
We also suggest listening to our episode on Shakespeare and the Colonial Imagination (Website | Apple Podcasts | Spotify) and the All My Relations podcast’s episode “ThanksTaking or ThanksGiving” (Website | Apple Podcasts | Spotify)
Shakespeare Anyone? is created and produced by Korey Leigh Smith and Elyse Sharp.
Music is "Neverending Minute" by Sounds Like Sander.
