Exploring Whiteness

"Exploring Our Whiteness" is the first of 3 interactive sessions of theater and discussion in our series "Telling Our Stories: Healing the Wounds of Racism, Building Beloved Community."  See what this looks like in this short video.

This session is designed for an all-White audience to share stories of learning, enacting and resisting racist beliefs and behaviors. Participants see themselves in one another’s stories of race and racism as they are brought to life on stage by members of Playback for Change, a Philadelphia-based company that facilitates racial understanding using the improvisational theater form Playback Theatre. Audience members’ real stories become the source material. The performance is spontaneous - it is theater created through a unique collaboration between performers and audience. Each session will use the practice of affinity spaces to prepare participants to have a deeper, braver and more honest conversation. Each session costs $15 per person or $50 for a group of 5 or more. Financial assistance is available. Email For any questions about the Telling Our Stories series, Playback for Change, or Playback Theatre, please email The Rev. Barbara Ballenger (
