Jaz Dorsey on Acting

I have spent the last 30 years looking for the answer to a question. Thanks to AAPEX and what it has shown me through the many amazing scripts I have had the blessing of reading, I have found the answer.
Here's the question:
What BIOLOGICAL purpose do actors serve?
Actors Confirm Reality
Every play is a discourse on reality.
Nowhere is this more obvious (to me) than in the case of the very lopsided view we hold of American history with regard to the roles that African Americans have played in that history as I have seen this error unfold before me in the scripts I have read, which address this indignity and which will, when and if they are produced, bring a new perception of our historical reality to all of those who see those productions.
