“Before Emails: A Readers’ Theatre Production”
In celebration of Black History Month 2014, the Readers’ Theater will present “Before Emails: A Readers’ Theater Producution” that highlights the value of literacy and communication skills. Performed by a cast of professional readers and poets, the production is accompanied by a multimedia presentation that includes visual and musical backdrops.
The production uses Ms. Pamela Newkirk’s 2007 novel, “Letters from Black America.” This effort helps to fill the literacy and historical void in the African-American experience by presenting a multi-dimensional portrait of African-American experience by presenting a multi-dimensional portrait of African-American life from the 18th century to the 21st century. Through the illuminating letters of ordinary and exceptional African-Americans, the cast members portray various correspondence from people like Toni Morrison, Paul and Alice Dunbar, Martin Luther King, Zora Neal Hurston, and Langston Hughes.
