Remembering Doris Abramson

Amherst native Doris Abramson, a UMASS Amherst professor emeritus of Theater and a pioneering scholar of black theater, died last week at the age of 82. During more than 31 years on the faculty, Abramson taught theater history and oral interpretation of literature as a member of the English, Speech and Theater departments. WFCR’s Bob Paquette, long ago a student of Abramson, has this remembrance.
