POTSDAM -- The play "The Black-Jew Dialogues" will be performed for free at Clarkson University Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. in the Barben Rooms of the Cheel Campus Center.

For directions: #5 on the map at http://www.clarkson.edu/about/clarkson_map.pdf. The Black-Jew Dialogues combines fast-paced sketches, improvisations, multi-media, puppets and a game show to create a production that has gained praise across the world.

Emmy-award winner Ron Jones and veteran performer Larry Jay Tish take the audience on a hysterical and poignant ride through three days they spent together in a cheap hotel room discussing their own experiences, the history of their people, and why there has been a growing rift between the two groups since the early '70s.

Through their dialogue the audience gains insight to the true nature of prejudice and how our inability to face our own biases separate us in ways that we may not even think about.

Following the performance there will be a discussion with the audience.
