What does going beyond look like?  For me, it's naming the ways I've been complicit in enforcing white supremacist values in my theatre career; as student, educator, actor and director and then deciding to be purposeful in seeking knowledge from those whose contributions to theatre have been minimized, discounted, appropriated, and ignored.  Beyond is discovering how theatre can be diverse, innovative, and exciting for ALL.  

Ashe.
