The Defamation Experience Encourages Dialogue

This year, students participated in The Defamation Experience, an interactive theatrical performance and discussion centered on a fictional courtroom drama involving a civil defamation case. Using the context of a legal trial, the cast navigated issues including race, class, gender and religion, culminating in deliberation and a decision in which students participated as jurors. The post-show discussion, led by a facilitator, provided an opportunity to talk about issues of identity, inclusion, justice and our connection as people.


Providing students with the tools to grow and flourish and realize their greatest potential is at the heart of Milton’s mission. It is the principle that informs and guides our ongoing work and that is echoed in the deeds and actions of many of our alumni. We feature some of that work in this issue.
