1619: The Journey of a People

August 20, 2019 represents the 400-year anniversary of the first enslaved Africans arriving on the shores of this nation. Told through the eyes of three modern characters and a series of performance pieces, this multi-disciplinary theater experience will leave audiences both inspired and challenged about the progress of America’s African sons and daughters. 1619 features a dynamic cast of singers, actors, spoken word artists, and dancers who reflect on the past while tackling critical contemporary social issues. With an appeal for all ages, this production reminds us that on the other side of the trial lies greatness.

After successful shows in Chicago, Elmhurst College, and Hampton University, we are excited about our upcoming 2020 productions! They include…Wheaton College Feb. 6th, Kennedy-King College Feb. 8th, and the Greenhouse Theater Feb. 27th and 28th!
