Info

After two packed performances this past spring, Eastern Connecticut State University's Performing Arts Department presents the encore production of Africa to America: A Celebration of Who We Arewritten by Wendy R. Coleman. Re-imaged and directed by DeRon S. Williams, Assistant Professor of Directing, Africa to America is a special presentation that will run in the Fine Arts Instruction Center's Proscenium Theater from September 17-19, 2019. This interdisciplinary performance chronicles the involuntary voyage from Africa to the unknown lands of America through the use of oration, music, dance, and multimedia. This rich and powerful experience depicts the struggles, determination, and triumphs as seen through the eyes of many African ancestors and descendants. The audience will also learn of the long history, heritage, and legacy of African Americans from some of the most notable icons: Harriet Tubman, Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Angela Davis, Rosa Parks, and the first African American President and First Lady, Barack & Michelle Obama. Join us for the return of this audience favorite.
