Fifty years ago, on Feb. 1, 1960, four students sat down for lunch, and stood up for their rights. Join us for new theatre adaptation of the original National Museum of American History’s interactive program that will have thousands of visitors singing and cheering each day. The Greensboro lunch counter has come to embody the spirit of quiet courage that turned the nation around and ensured equality for African Americans.
Director Christopher Wilson brings this experience to life on the stage in Carmichael Auditorium at the National Museum of American History for a very special show celebrating Black History Month. Audiences will actually take part in a training session in non-violent protest, based on an original 1960’s manual used by freedom fighters and citizen activists of the Civil Rights movement.
