Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Theatre and Dance presents Wounded Healers

January 20, 2022 |

MANKATO – The first production of the 2022 calendar year begins next week with the opening of Timothy Berry’s Wounded Healers. Dr. Berry is the Interim Associate Vice President for Faculty Affairs and Equity Initiatives at Minnesota State University, Mankato. He is also a talented artist as he wrote the book and the music for Wounded Healers, and he performs on stage as the musician.

About Wounded Healers: This music and spoken-word performance piece is a historical chronology of how Black male bodies physically carry neurological trauma due to structural and systemic racism. Yet, against all odds, from the inception of chattel slavery to present day, Black men have used creative expression to persist, survive and heal.
