BREATHE: THE MUSICAL

A great deal of American history has attempted to take the breaths away from African Americans through rape, lynching, Jim Crow laws, KKK terror, injustice and police brutality. Breathe: the Musical is the story of the Jones family, a post-slavery family of sharecroppers in the early to mid 1900's, as they seek refuge from America's violent racial climate. Supremacy has begot rape, false allegations, lynch threats, and eventually death to the family.

THEARC Theater presents...Black History Celebration Series production Malcolm, Martin, Medgar

“MALCOLM, MARTIN, MEDGAR”  The story centers on Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Medgar Evers, three assassinated icons of the civil rights movement, and their reunion in the after-life to discuss and comment on current events in our day, including the war in Iraq and hurricane Katrina. Mr. Bailey spins a tale of speculation with aplomb and breathtaking insight, a feat that can only be accomplished by one who has witnessed firsthand the thoughts and ideas of men who lived and died for the struggle of Black people during the 1960’s.
