Anne and Emmett: Virtual Stage Play produced by Ebony Road Players
February 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Black History Month with Hackley Library
In this imaginative, 90 minute virtual play, Anne and Emmett (Anne Frank and Emmett Till) meet in a place called “Memory” to share accounts of their lives and deaths. The story, about Till, an African American boy and Anne Frank, a German-Dutch Jewish girl, compares and contrasts how the racial injustices experienced on both ends were more similar than many people want to accept. A short discussion on the importance of the arts in history, education, and social justice will follow.
