Join writer and actor Roger Guenveur Smith tomorrow at 7 PM ET on SummerStageAnywhere.org for an exclusive conversation about the Spike Lee-directed film, “Rodney King.” Joined by academic and author Dr. Stephanie Leigh Batiste, Smith dives into the conception of the performance, its journey from improv to the stage, and King’s continued resonance.
Recorded live at SummerStage in Manhattan’s East River Park in 2016, “Rodney King” is a one-man show written by and starring Smith that gives voice to Rodney King’s story. Smith performs a variety of personas, alternately taking and opposing King’s side. Watch the film throughout February for free courtesy of Netflix here (use password RodneyKing2021)*.
