Arena Stage Salutes Minority Landowners

Arena Stage will present a free program Sunday on the legacy of land ownership and architectural contributions by minority groups in America.

The event will feature Native American and African American scholars who will discuss how cultures and communities have been defined by their spiritual and legal rights to own property and build.

The two-hour program, which begins at 2 p.m. at Arena Stage, is offered in conjunction with the staging of Bertolt Brecht's "The Caucasian Chalk Circle."

Panelists will include Ruth Brown, president of the African American Historical Society of Prince George's County; Mitchell Bush, president of the American Indian Society; and Barbara Talley, director of the United Black Culture Center in Montgomery County.
