Event description

Description

Untitled Reconstruction Project is a performance based on the 1871 testimony of Spartanburg County residents who were terrorized by the Ku Klux Klan. The show combines historical text, original writing by the cast, and discussion facilitated by Speaking Down Barriers. Our ensemble is made up of actors, writers, poets, lawyers, and historians. "Untitled Reconstruction Project" asks, how can we trace the journey from 1871 to 2017? What is different, and what has stayed the same?


Join us in October at the Library Headquarters for the performance, and also to see the exhibit curated by the Library's Kennedy Room staff. This exhibit will explore the Era of Reconstruction in Spartanburg, as well as genealogical information about the historical figures in the play. Performances run approximately 2 hours including a 5-minute pause.

**This show is free and open to the public. Reserve a ticket with us so that we know you're coming. Please note, however, that if you are not at the venue by showtime, we may release your seats to other patrons. Since there are a limited number of reserved tickets, if we sell out here, do not hesitate to join us at the library and we will do our best to accommodate everyone (fire code permitting).**
