Interviews by a Black Independent: Lenora Fulani Interviews Roscoe Orman in Harlem

Each month Dr. Lenora Fulani interviews movers and shakers in the development community with a diverse audience of independents, progressives, and neighbors in the 2nd floor Gallery at the Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building in Harlem (125th Street).

Roscoe Orman, the actor who plays the beloved "Gordon" on Sesame Street, lit up the room on June 3, 2011, speaking about the history of black theater in NYC, the Free Southern Theater, and this special performance of a scene from Matt Robison's controversial one-man play about Lincoln Perry called "The Confessions of Stepin Fetchit" created for Mr. Orman in 1993 on Broadway.
