Title

Article "A Fun Way of Understanding"

Description

This article details black Westhampton College sophomore Madieth Malone’s interest in witchcraft alongside of her role as Tituba, the enslaved woman from Barbados and confessed witch, in the upcoming University Players performance of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible at Camp Memorial Theater. Malone has been studying witchcraft for several years, mainly including palm readings and astrology. Malone explains that her role as Tituba helps “to set the mood of the play,” which takes place during the Salem Witch Trials in Massachusetts. She enjoys watching the reactions to her witchcraft usage as a way of understanding people. It is worth noting that this article and performance of The Crucible occur just one year after the University of Richmond admitted its first full-time black students in the fall of 1968.
