East Carolina University Contemporary Writers Series, in collaboration the North Carolina Humanities Council, will present Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar in diverse community programs to target area youth. Events will include a public forum for students, performance of scenes from his prize-winning play Disgraced (2012) in the Hendrix Theatre at the Student Center as well as classroom visits. Akhtar will also give radio interviews to address current concerns about persistent cultural prejudices that have grown at an alarming rate due to recent events.
