Abstract:

A videorecording of a live event featuring Studs Terkel and Anna Deavere Smith in conversation at the Harold Washington Library in Chicago. Topics include theater and the intersections between Terkel's and Smith's vocations; Smith "performing as" Terkel on "a defining moment in American history"; the relationship between acting and truth; acting in politics; Smith discussing her experience as an acting student learning to perform Shakespeare and how it led her to an understanding of deeper truths; Terkel and Smith's hopelessness about politics and its focus on surface; President Clinton and his charisma; how people speak in public, including Smith "performing as" Maggie Williams, First Lady Hillary Clinton's chief of staff; vocal inflections and pauses which help them get at the truth of people's words; rhythm in the preaching at black churches; President Clinton's manner of speaking; Smith's background; Smith "performing as" Ken Burns discussing Thomas Jefferson and his condemnation of slavery; and Monica Lewinsky.
