Challenging American Inequality: Historical Literacy Matters - A History Education Roundtable
- Schomburg Center For Research In Black Culture, New York NY
The Schomburg Junior Scholars are proud to present a theatrical reading of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” for school and community groups for Black History Month 2014.
This theatrical reading, as conceived by Artistic Director Shaun Neblett, portrays a group of high school students who must read and interpret Dr. King’s Letter from Birmingham Jail in order to fulfill their graduation requirements. As they strive to make sense of Dr. King’s 50 year old letter, scenes from contemporary times illuminate their understanding and make the messages relevant for today. Will they pass?
This show is recommended for grades 5-12 and up. Groups can reserve up to 50 seats per order. If you have any questions, please call Schomburg Education at (212) 491-2207.
Special benifit performance on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 6:00 P.M. To Purcharse tickets, please click here.
