Opening Reception: Help Me Find My People
April 6, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Wednesday, April 6
Join us at the Center for a reception to honor the opening of “Help Me Find My People,” the final act of the 2015-16 Dramatic Arts & Process Series. Based on the highly lauded book by the same title, “Help Me to Find My People” chronicles the journey of African Americans from loss to the search for and discovery of their loved ones immediately after Emancipation, a search that still reverberates in African American families today. This dramatic performance, crafted by Obie Award-winning playwright Nikkole Salter and based on the book by former UNC history professor Heather Andrea Williams, will also serve as the final installment of the “Telling Our Stories of Home” conference festival, supported by an NEH grant for “Humanities in the Public Square.”
5:30 PM, Love House & Hutchins Forum
