No one knows who fired the first shot in Elaine, Arkansas in 1919, triggering one of the deadliest race riots in United States history. That stark moment was a turning point for American civil liberties, propelling changes to our criminal justice system and paving the way for the Civil Rights movement.
On Sunday, February 19 at 2PM at Trinity Church, actors will read selections from J. Chester Johnson’s beautiful poetic rendering about one of the worst genocides in American history, with accompanying dance by Trinity’s Movement Choir and a multimedia presentation.
The event is part of Trinity Church Wall Street’s observance of Black History Month.Buy tickets/get more info now
