"A Christmas Carol"
November 19–December 11
7:30 p.m.
Miller Theatre Complex Robinson Theatre

A miserly rich man is visited by the ghost of his former partner and forced to encounter the spirits of Christmas past, present, and future in a journey to reform his heart and soul.  Dickens’ celebrated ghost story of 1843 is adapted for the stage by John Schmor.

In a time of severe income inequality and increasing meanness in our society, Dickens’ classic continues to remind us of the value in community, of the need for festivity despite the winter’s cold. The story of Ebeneezer Scrooge calls us to look outside the narrow paths of selfishness and greed, and follow instead the spirits of charity and hope.

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination (card or photo) or negative test within 72 hours with a valid photo ID required for all guests ages 12+. Masks are required for all guests ages 5+.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration and Awards Ceremony 2022
January 13
11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m.

This year's commemorative activities will include a virtual program and watch parties on Eugene and Portland campuses:

• Commemoration and Awards Ceremony will feature tributes, speakers, and a celebration of this year’s awards winners and nominees. • To attend in-person watch party at UO Eugene or Portland campus, register by January 5, 2022.

Equity, inclusion, and diversity are fundamental values we aspire to as a university community. These values were profoundly reflected in the life and work of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Each year, the Division of Equity and Inclusion celebrates university faculty and staff whose contributions to the campus and local communities exemplify ideals espoused by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In 2022, we are adding individual and group awards for student and community partners.

This year's theme Amplifying Voices for Racial Solidarity and Equity inspires our community during this difficult time and serves as a reminder that we have both an individual and collective responsibility to fight against injustice. Dr. King did not act alone, and it is imperative that our campus community is intentional in our words and actions. In Dr. King’s words, “You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say.” 

Please email deicace@uoregon.edu with any questions. Hosted by the Division of Equity and Inclusion.

"Personal History" by Dominic Taylor
January 21–February 5
7:30 p.m.
Miller Theatre Complex Hope Theatre

Personal History follows an African-American couple as they navigate three moments in American life, stretched out over a century in the city of Chicago. The highly educated pharmacist Eugene enters the world of the play in 1903, outraged that he is overqualified and underemployed. At an elegant parlor party hosted by his white business associate, Eugene scandalizes the other guests by challenging their comfortable liberalism. He also meets his future bride, Bethany, herself an accomplished business owner. As the action shifts from 1903 to the 1950s and eventually, to the 1990s, their relationship changes. The play is a snapshot of the history of African Americans and their struggles in this country.

Directed by Stanley Coleman
