Performance Dates

An imaginary conversation between Anne Frank and Emmett Till, both victims of racial intolerance and hatred. Anne is the 15 year old Jewish girl whose diary offered the world a gripping perspective of the Holocaust and touched the hearts of humanity. Emmett is the 14 year old African American boy whose brutal murder in Mississippi sparked the modern civil rights movement. An uplifting tribute, a timely reminder and a call to action, "tikkun olam" to repair the world. All ages should see this powerful tribute to two teens who changed the course of history.
