Story

Plan to attend a live digital theatre performance of Maria James Thiaw’s 2018 award winning work, Reclaiming My Time: An American Griot Project. This choreopoem tells the true stories of women who lived through the civil rights movement. Each story shines light on the marginalization of the black woman’s voice both historically and currently.

Please plan to attend this 90 minute live digital theatre event: 45 minute performance + 45 minute interactive panel discussion.

Thursday, December 3 at 3 pm. NOTE: If you attended the original performance, you’ll remember it was a 90 minute production, however for this event it has been shorten. AND the Zoom platform has created a unique and engaging retelling of the stories.

(Fun fact: most of the original actors have returned to restage this dynamic piece of theatre via zoom. We have our Adrienne Thoman, Dean of Engagement; Morgan Littleford, alum; Amiia Martin, current student; 5 returning actors and 1 new actor, 13 year old Sydney Rushing from Maryland.)

Panel Discussion Details: Poet/Playwright Maria James Thiaw will open the discussion by framing the NEED for The American Griot Project and the collection of real women’s stories from the Civil Rights Movement. She will build a bridge between the marginalization of black women’s voice from history to the present. The panelists will encourage the audience to explore two questions:

  1. What role does higher education play in addressing systemic inequities?
  2. What do you do in your office, department, classrooms to create opportunities for diverse forms of expression and representation?

Please log on around 2:50 pm for a 3 pm start.
