Description: In the late summer of 1991, long-simmering tensions between Black and Jewish
residents of Crown Heights, Brooklyn erupted in a series of violent events. Renowned
playwright Anna Deavere Smith interviewed more than 100 people about those
tension-filled days, creating a striking tapestry of oral histories examining that flashpoint
moment in American history. A single performer brings those stories to electrifying life in
Fires in the Mirror.
