Challenges, Chances, Changes: My Object Lesson in “Reclaiming My Time”

CHALLENGES, CHANCES, CHANGES — MY OBJECT LESSON IN ‘RECLAIMING MY TIME' is a biographical reflection based on Dr. Brenda Dixon Gottschild's long career as a performer, professor, scholar, and writer. Lessons about anti-racism are implicit in the story of this elder African-American female's career trajectory, which unfolds here as a powerpoint-performance-lecture presentation. Dixon Gottschild's approach is personal--an "object lesson" taken from her own life. The event culminates with an important moment of audience participation at the close of the staged presentation. Rather than the usual “talk-back” format, Dr. Dixon Gottschild facilitates a post-presentation “reflection,” utilizing an original approach she has developed over many years.
