Aesthetic Realism Dramatic Presentation of "Gwe, Young Man of New Guinea"

This matinee features a dramatic reading of passages from the moving anti-racism novel by Arnold Perey. Dr. Perey, noted anthropologist and educator, writes with power and lyricism of life in New Guinea.

About the value of Aesthetic Realism to his life and work, he writes:

"Thanks to this education, I began to understand the people of New Guinea more exactly by far than when I was living amongst them. I began to realize how alive the people were, how their flesh, like mine, contains a heart that can beat slower or faster with emotion; that I had the same feelings they did."

That's Gwe, Young Man of New Guinea, on Sunday, June 10 at 2:30 PM.
