THE AMERICAN SLAVERY PROJECT

• Is a theatrical response to revisionism in American discourse about enslavement and its aftermath. 

• Creates original work. "Unheard Voices" is a monologue play with music, based on the burials at The African Burial Ground.  It brings to life  anonymous African descended New Yorkers from colonial times.

 

• Explores eugenics in the era of Jim Crow.  "The Haunted Files"  was created from the actual files of the Eugenics Society.

 

• Supports African-American playwrights who write about the eras  with readings and developmental workshops​.

 

• Creates conversation in the community.

 

• Provides educational workshops for students and adults.

• Makes vital connections between our past and today.
