Janet Langhart Cohen’s “Anne and Emmett”

January 21

This one-act play is an imaginary conversation between Anne Frank and Emmett Till, both victims of racial intolerance and hatred. Frank, the 13-year-old Jewish girl whose diary provided a gripping perspective of the Holocaust, speaks with Till, the 14-year-old African American boy whose brutal murder in Mississippi sparked the American civil rights movement. Though this play deals with innocence, grief, hurt, and brutality inflicted on two young people, you will leave feeling uplifted with a drive to make a change in your own community. Anne & Emmett contains derogatory racial language and imagery that could be disturbing but reflects the realities of the lives and deaths of these two young victims of hate crimes.
