Black, Female and Super Powered: An Interview With Grace Gipson on Black Comic Book Super Heroines

Yolo Akili | April 16, 2013 | Black Voices
This difficulty to write white female superheroines has fallen down even more so on black female superheroines, who not only become victims to the white male sexist imagination, but, among other things, it's racist stereotypes.

Stage Review: The Snake Can

Brad Schreiber | April 16, 2013 | Arts
While the playwright gets in a goodly share of heartfelt exchanges and bon mots from her characters, we are exhausted at the end by the "niceness" of the work's generally tepid dramatic and comedic choices.

About a Museum

Agnes Gund | April 16, 2013 | Arts
The museum thrives, I think, because of that long embedded public mission. When I visited it recently, I was struck all over again by the immediacy and urgency of providing "benefit to all the people." How, I wondered, is the mission met, today?

Two of the Greatest Love Songs You May Not Know

Robert J. Elisberg | April 16, 2013 | Entertainment
Okay, it's Valentine's Day, so I figured I'd pass along a couple of my all-time fave love songs from musicals. Remarkably, both are probably songs you've never heard. Even more remarkably, they're from shows many of you have never even heard of.

Michael Giltz | April 16, 2013 | Entertainment
Bunnicula the novel led to a string of sequels and still sells well. If this harmless musical enjoys a long life, it will strictly be due to the warm feelings for Howe's original work.

Photo Challenge: Express Yourself Through Fashion

Brittany Binowski | April 16, 2013 | Arts
Who do I want to be today? How do I want to make people feel about me and themselves? These are the types of questions that go through my head after I wake up each morning. The answer is always different. Some days I want to be tough or assertive, others I want to be friendly and welcoming. And what I wear plays a big part in that.

In the Company of History: How Being Part of The Laramie Project Changed My Life

Mercedes Herrero | April 16, 2013 | Gay Voices
As an actor, you don't always feel that your work is relevant. Sometimes you'd like to be in the trenches of life, truly helping people in a more direct way. But with this play I never felt that. And I remember how I started making subtle shifts in my habits.

Genevieve Adams | April 16, 2013 | Comedy
How do we survive the daily catastrophes of our over-programmed, plugged-in lives? Since middle school, like many of my peers, I have dealt with anxiety. Yet I have overcome a lot of my fear of uncertainty: in the rehearsal room, on the stage, and with a script.

I Love Love, So Naturally I Hate Valentine's Day

Dion Rabouin | April 16, 2013 | Black Voices
Isn't the entire point of love that it calls us to do beautiful and spontaneous things for the person who is the object of our affection? And if it is, isn't a day devoted to coerced displays of that affection through gifts, dinners or "special" evenings, the very antithesis of it?

Colonizing Abstraction: MoMA's Inventing Abstraction Show Denies Its Ancient Global Origins

G. Roger Denson | January 23, 2014 | Arts
