Re: “Memphis Theater Community Mourns Actor, Volunteer Ron Gordon

I have come to NOT react to grief immediately, but to look at it for what it is- and then access that person's impact on me. I chose to do what I do about any and everything- Write about it, b/c that's what writer's DO. The account of 3 tearful times concerning Ron Gordon is written in the program of Women's Theatre Festival of Memphis' production of "Don't Tell Me I Can't Fly," (May 13-21-Evergreen Theatre) and I will post on FB and other social media on Monday) I think to myself- a lot of people could say that title after the "Ron Gordon Experience" for many could not have accomplished much in Memphis Theatre without him; Ruby O'Gray

Re: “Overton Square's New Hattiloo Theatre is Ready for a Spotlight

Again, I say, "built from the ground up" may be an obvious statement of any edifice, but it is especially significant in the community of people of color. Perseverance, determination are the words that come to mind about Hattiloo Theatre. While independent theatre has been around for years in all ethnicities, African-American Theatre in Memphis has never had a brand new building. I shutter to think of the tears that will be shed from other artists and from my eyes, as well, as I look back to 1973 for me in theatre and even before as a youth with my present 65 years on this earth-when I only saw people of color on stage in church plays. I look forward to June 28, whether my health lets me be there in person or seen on the video & photos I know that my daughter will take. Congratulations, Ekundayo and all- as I remember the skinny young playwright I met in '91- to the still slim but wiser and powerhouse Producer/Visionary today! Ruby O'Gray

Re: “Legacies

I remember meeting her in the 70s, and being in two of her classes when I returned to college in my late 40s ( I'm not 61) She does not know how she challenged me, I think. I imitate Gloria from time to time, when I direct people who know her-her softspoken, yet emphatic voice, and the questions as to why a particular directing experimental location was chosen. I use these questions as a gauge to the work I do today. Gloria Baxter is not only a Memphis treasure, but a National one....Ruby O'Gray
