Meet Ernest Green, first to graduate from an integrated high school; Claudette Colvin, refused to give up her bus seat; & Ruby Bridges, who won equal rights before she could read. Sponsored by FOLMC.
Discovery Theater’s original touring production introduces us to young heroes – and calls us to join them in changing the world. Meet Ernest Green of the Little Rock Nine, the first student to graduate from an integrated high school; Claudette Colvin, the 15-year-old who refused to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama, bus (nine months before Rosa Parks); and Ruby Bridges, who won equal rights before she could read. Moving archival musical recordings accent these scenes of struggle and hope. Sponsored by FOLMC.
