Listen to this Studio 360 interview with actress Uta Hagen--great material on her commitment to civil rights. She was one of the youngest to be blacklisted in 1950.

Here's a playbill from one of her most notable performances, in Margaret Webster's Othello, where she co-starred with Paul Robeson and Jose Ferrer.
