The White Feather Project

The White Feather Project is a theatrical play concerning white fragility and cowardice. Devised from scholarly texts, primary sources, and in-person interviews, the community of Ursinus College is the vehicle and incubator for this piece. 

Cowardice lives in all of us, regardless of race, but the project and its research will demonstrate, from the “top down”, how this trait has larger repercussions for marginalized groups– whether we intend it to or not. 

The White Feather Project holds a mirror to the Ursinus community, but all will be able to see themselves in the data. Through theatre, we will see how, when, and why we should be brave.  

The White Feather Project, is a two- session event that aims to address cowardice within the frame of racial stress. All are welcome to participate. 

  • Session 1: Thursday, February 21st at 7:30pm
  • Session 2: Friday, February 22nd at 7:30pm
