News   Kathryn Stockett, Marc Morial, Harold Ford, Jr. to Participate in Driving Miss Daisy Talkbacks
 
The participants in a series of post-show talkbacks at Driving Miss Daisy during the month of February were announced Jan. 21 by producers Jed Bernstein and Adam Zotovich.

The talkbacks will occur after every Wednesday evening performance during the month of February, to celebrate Black History Month, and will feature authors, politicians, professors and community leaders.

The series will kick off Feb. 2 with CBS News correspondent Michelle Miller moderating a conversation featuring her husband, National Urban League president and former New Orleans mayor Marc Morial, and New York University professor David J. Dent.

Producer Jed Bernstein will moderate the discussions for the following three weeks. The Feb. 9 talkback will feature NYU professor Martha Hodes and New York City Deputy Mayor Dennis Walcott.

Bernstein will welcome former U.S. congressman Harold Ford, Jr. and NYU professor Jennifer Morgan to the stage Feb. 16.

On Feb. 23, Bernstein will be joined by Kathryn Stockett, the author of the best-selling novel "The Help," and Columbia University professor Jonathan Schorsch. Driving Miss Daisy dramatizes the relationship between a white Southern Jewish woman and her black chauffeur as race relations shift in mid-century America. The current revival, starring James Earl Jones, Vanessa Redgrave and Boyd Gaines, is playing at the Golden Theatre.
