THE HISTORYMAKERS AND THE DEPARTMENT OF AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDIES
Wednesday, March 31, 2010, at 7:30pm |
The Moment honors African Americans through a dramatic reading of stories from The HistoryMakers archive. For 10 years, The HistoryMakers project has collected interviews with accomplished African Americans—both those who are well known and those who so far have not been widely recognized—to present and preserve the missing stories of America. In celebration of the archive’s anniversary, the University of Illinois Department of African American Studies presents The Moment to underline the importance of focusing as individuals and as a community on important goals, unifying through the recollection of the past, and joining with one another to rejoice in life itself. A reception in the Lobby will follow the performance.
