San Diego Play Puts Spotlight On Neighborhood Segregation

GUESTS:

Sam Woodhouse, co-founder and artistic director of the San Diego Repertory Theatre. Director of Clybourne Park

Claudia Thompson, retired teacher

Adrian Florido, KPBS Fronteras reporter

Transcript

The San Diego Repertory Theater's new production "Clybourne Park" picks up the story of Lorraine Hansberry's landmark work "A Raisin In The Sun."

The play discusses themes of race, class and housing segregation in America. San Diego has its own history of housing restrictions, which attempted to keep races and religions apart.

And here, just as in the play, some of those issues are being reversed, as white buyers attempt to move into traditionally non-white neighborhoods.
