Pulitzer Prize Finalist Fires in the Mirror
$18 - $19*
$36 - $38
In August 1991, simmering tensions in the racially polarized Brooklyn neighborhood of Crown Heights exploded into riots after an African-American boy was killed by a car in a rabbi's motorcade, and a Jewish student was slain in retaliation. Pulitzer Prize finalist Fires in the Mirror is dramatist Anna Deavere Smith's stunning exploration of the events and emotions leading up to and following the Crown Heights conflict. Through her portrayals of more than two dozen adversaries, victims and eyewitnesses, using verbatim excerpts from their observations derived from interviews she conducted, Smith provides a brilliant, Rashoman-like documentary portrait of contemporary ethnic turmoil. Find out why The New York Times called Fires in the Mirror, "Quite simply the most compelling and sophisticated view of urban racial and class conflict that one could hope to encounter."
