Alum Danny Glover Returns to Theatre in 'Yohen' in Los Angeles
THE PASADENA WEEKLY -- The fact that the play explores hot-button racial issues through an intimate personal relationship is a reflection of Glover’s own apparent personal evolution in how he addresses social issues. One of Hollywood’s most outspoken progressive activists, Glover helped lead the longest student-led strike in U.S. history in order to push San Francisco State University to establish a Department of Black Studies.
Glover is also a board member of the Algebra Project, the Black AIDS Institute, Walden House and the Something Positive Dance Group. He was charged with disorderly conduct and unlawful assembly after being arrested outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, D.C., during a protest over Sudan’s humanitarian crisis in Darfur.
