Giving Voice to Untold Tales

Sandy and I were pleased to be in the audience in February when we hosted theatre performances celebrating the lives of African-American Hoosiers to sold-out crowds. “Black Hoosiers: Untold Tales” was performed with a four night run featuring the stories of the lives of Lillian Thomas Fox – a journalist and civic leader; Dr. Martin Jenkins –pioneer and researcher; and Willa Brown – groundbreaking pilot.  A dialogue with the audience about issues of race, history and identity, followed each performance. Many thanks to our partners at the Peace Learning Center, Earnest Disney-Britton of the Arts Council of Indianapolis and Tamara Winfrey-Harris of the Central Indiana Community Foundation.
