Event description

Description


Meet Emmett Till, a young boy whose vibrant personality and charismatic disposition always leaves a smile on your face. He was friendly and fearless and perhaps a little naïve. His brutal murder in 1955, ignited a movement that set in motion the powerful ripples of change that transformed our quest for freedom into a relentless struggle for justice and humanity.

This production has received overwhelmingly positive reviews regarding the handling of such sensitive yet important subject matter. It has been the mission of Shades of Truth Theatre to boldly use the power and presence of dramatic performance art, to create an atmosphere for truth & change. We recently performed at Williams Institutional CME Church in Harlem, where more than 400 patrons gathered to examine this very important history together.

Whistle in Mississippi is one of many productions we have performed over the past twelve years, in New York City and the tri-state region and beyond. We have presented our brand of educational theatre in churches, colleges, universities as well as public and private NYC schools and neighbourhood centres.


Proceeds from this production will benefit the The Black Wall Street Festival NYC


We welcome and are grateful for the opportunity to perform this important body of work in a theatre of such rich history. The Black Lady Theatre was the home to aspiring film makers, performing artist, activists and other organizations, showcasing their stage plays, independent films and think tank meetings; years ago.

We hope this will be the beginning of a long relationship for Shades of Truth Theatre and The Black Lady Theatre as well as you the patron.
