Talk with Eva Doumbia after Lunch

Join us in the library on March 7th for a riveting talk with Eva Doumbia (France/Mali/Ivory Coast): Author, director, and actress, Eva Doumbia received her theater degree from the University of Aix-en-Provence, where she notably studied with Jacques Lassalle, Krystian Lupa, and André Engel. In 1999, she founded the theater company La Part du Pauvre. 
A founding member of the Décoloniser les arts collective, Eva Doumbia is part of the generation paying close attention to the ways in which racial relations, inherited from French colonial history, still express themselves today in society. Her works are published by Acte Sud and Vent d’Ailleurs.
