SCHOOL-TIME MATINEE PERFORMANCE FOR STUDENTS

10-year old Jabari loves to paint. And through these paintings and in his dreams, he escapes the reality of the turbulent world around him. He meets children and young people from the Civil Rights Era, including Ruby Bridges, Claudette Colvin, and others, who teach him how to be fearless. Will Jabari learn to take these lessons back into his own life and heal his community? Using rap, freedom songs, hip-hop dance, history, and humor, this play explores what it means to have courage.

Two performances: @ 10am &  1pm. Recommended for Grades 4-6
