Smart People: A Brilliant Response

Four Harvard-associated professionals search for love, success and identity while attempting to navigate the intricacies of racial and sexual politics.

“I loved the show! So wonderfully staged, directed, lit and acted… it really made me think, laugh and cry too. It confronted racism with truth and compassion, allowing me to think about my internal biases without feeling ashamed. I felt uplifted when I left, not hopeless as racism often makes me feel- we are all human and imperfect, all trying to be honest, seen and given a respectful place in our world.”—Melena Moore, Sebastopol
