Local High School Students Write and Perform Play That Celebrates Black History Icons
Our Journey, a play celebrating Black History Month, is written, directed, and performed by local high school students. The students research people who made their mark in history, and then retell their stories through song, dance, and spoken word. An actor portraying abolitionist and women's rights activist Sojourner Truth will guide the play, and iconic figures will be spotlighted, such as American opera singer Grace Bumbry, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, civil rights activist Rosa Parks, Birmingham leader Richard Arrington, entertainer Dorothy Dandridge, and the first published black poet, Phillis Wheatley.
Our Journey will be held in the Alys Stephens Performing Arts Center's Reynolds-Kirschbaum Recital Hall. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and may be purchased by calling the box office at (205) 975-2787 or online at http://alysstephens.uab.edu/events/?id=220.
