Director talks about The Colored Museum on WHUP-FM’s Light’s Up!

Ron Foreman, director of The Colored Museum written by George C. Wolfe, and Roman Lawrence, a senior in poultry science, talk with WHUP-FM’s Lights Up! host Wayne Leonard. The Colored Museum is a satirical survey of African American culture and identity. Wolfe envisioned a series of exhibits where consumers would travel from exhibit to exhibit to view the contents of the museum which was then turned into a play.
