Down in Mississippi: A Gospel Play with Music
April 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Carlyle Brown & Company and the East Side Freedom Library present “DOWN IN MISSISSIPPI: A Gospel Play with Music” by Carlyle Brown and directed by Noël Raymond.
Down in Mississippi takes place during the Freedom Summer campaign to register African Americans to vote in the dangerous, segregated world of Mississippi in 1964. It explores the transformational experiences of three young civil rights activists who leave their safe northern homes to go down to Mississippi to try to change the world and discover that before they can change the world, they will have to change themselves. A celebration of a movement that gave birth to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voter’s Rights Act of 1965.
Featuring Mikell Sapp, Tony Sarnicki, Adelin Phelps, and Mari Harris with Amy Finch and Jeff Milligan-Toffler.
Tickets: Pay-What-You-Can, available at the door. First come, first served.
Dates: March 23 – April 8, 2017 Thursdays – Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sunday, April 2 at 2:00 pm
