“Clybourne Park,” a spin-off of Lorraine Hansberry’s 1959 play “A Raisin in the Sun,” is now playing at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, and it is opening up questions about the role of race and real estate in the Cincinnati community today.

McMicken College of Arts and Sciences associate professor of sociology Jeffrey Timberlake is joining the discussion in a community forum on Thursday, Feb. 6, from 6-8 p.m. at the United Way building in Walnut Hills. 

Timberlake will be a member of a panel sponsored by Housing Opportunities Made Equal (HOME). Other members of the panel include Kathryne Gardette, president of Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation, and "Clybourne Park" director Timothy Douglas. 

"Clybourne Park" is showing at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park through Feb. 16. 

Professor Timberlake recently discussed this topic on WVXU – the broadcast is available at this link:
