Vanita Vactor received her Doctorate in Educational Theatre from New York University. In addition to teaching for a number of years, she is a director and theatre-maker. Vactor's signature directing style includes using historical digital and video projections in her staged work. In 2005, she was a recipient of a Fulbright Scholar to South Africa. While there, she directed an African American play that explored stereotypical images rooted in enslavement. Historical images of both American and South Africa were projected during the play.
