Omar Sangare was invited as a special guest to honor the 150th anniversary of Ira Aldridge’s death. The anniversary event was organized by the Polish city of Lodz, where the 19th-century thespian died during a European tour, and where his grave is located. A century and a half later, following an invitation from the Lodz mayor’s office, Sangare recited excerpts from “Othello” and Elizabethan poems as part of the anniversary commemoration.
