"Feeling History: African-Americans' Reach for Equality"
for Grades 7-adult


In this theatrical history experience, audience-members embark on a guided journey from slavery to today. Actors use monologues, scenes, slides, music, sound and pointed interaction to help audiences intellectually and emotionally understand individual and institutional racism in a way that may well move them closer to each other and someday, perhaps, even to actions that will help end racism.

Educational Objectives

  1. To create a deep understanding that inequality and racism came about as a rationalization for slavery
  2. To create an emotional understanding of the abuse and inequality experienced by African-Americans through slavery
  3. To provide brief information regarding slavery, the Civil War, convict leasing, peonage, chain gangs, sharecropping, the Emancipation Proclamation, the 13th Amendment, the Dred Scott Decision, Reconstruction, Jim Crow laws, the Fair Housing Act, Brown vs. Board of Education and the Civil Rights Movement
  4. To differentiate and define individual racism and institutional racism
