The Other Black History

Time: 7 pm to 8:30 pm

Contact: Sybol Anderson · · 5048652306

Location: Nunemaker Auditorium, 3rd Floor, Monroe Hall

A righteous take on the 1980s-pop culture movie The Breakfast Club, the stage play, The Other Black History features a formerly incarcerated, yet exonerated schoolteacher as a detention monitor. Over two consecutive Saturdays of detention, he teaches four students about racial justice and courage in the face of adversity. Come see this teacher lead students through a powerful black history lesson that begins with the transatlantic slave trade and ends with the modern Civil Rights Movement.

The Other Black History is first-time playwright Flint Mitchell's attempt to teach comprehensive and accurate black history rather than the revisionist history that is being taught in schools. Mitchell knew that convincing schools, school districts, and government to teach what is true to their students and citizens would be impossible. Therefore, this play is a noble attempt to educate about some of the most basic, as well as some of the most controversial, American concepts using a stage play-an art form that is impervious to censorship and revision.
