DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSION ON EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT AND RACE
"All the world's a stage" is the phrase that begins a monologue from William Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT. Persona is Latin for the word person; meaning a part in a drama, assumed character," originally "mask, false face," such as those of wood or clay worn by the actors in later Roman theater. The word person also closely relates to the Etruscan word, phersu, meaning mask. So I ask, what role are you playing? Has that role been determined by another and assigned to you? Are you a main character or just a bit player? Is it time to remove the mask?
