Person of Power: Ira Aldridge


In today’s “People of Power” episode, we learn about the FIRST BLACK ACTOR to play the role of Othello–a black Shakespearean character.

Ira Aldridge was not only a talented and determined artist but an advocate as well.

Our “People of Power” series highlights the accomplishments of POC heroes from all disciplines.

Let us know if there is a hero with black or brown skin that you want to know more about!
