Celebrating Black History: John Douglas Thompson

Watch an interview with actor John Douglas Thompson who plays jazz greats Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis in the one-man show Satchmo at the Waldorf. For a number of years, Deerfield sophomores were delighted to welcome Thompson to the Black Box Theater, where he performed speeches from Shakespearean plays the students were reading.

We will continue to celebrate Black History throughout the rest of the term; the OICL Task Force invites you to share or film a short video about someone who is important to you. Please send your submission to OICL and Ms. White with a short introduction to the video and/or the person featured in it, and we’ll include it in a future Bulletin post!
