A two-year project, An Artist Embedded follows playwright Ain Gordon as he uncovers new stories about American struggles for personal liberty and public acceptance in HSP's Library and Archive. Leading up to the debut of a new theatrical piece inspired by Gordon's research in May 2016, HSP is hosting a series of public programs with visiting artists and scholars to engage the audience in an expansive discussion of individual rights and their relation to historical events. What is “historical fact”? Where is the truth in these stories, and can it be separated from “the created”?
