The World

Today we present the first installment in a new multimedia series called ?The Value,? hosted by our correspondent Farai Chideya. The series explores what we ? as individuals and as a society ? place value on.

Farai sat down with Anna Deavere Smith, who is an award-winning playwright, actress and professor famous for her ?documentary theatre.? Her newest, play, ?Let Me Down Easy,? focuses on the issue of our nation’s health care and is now playing at New York’s Second Stage Theater.
