“A Conversation After A Funeral”
Wednesday, January 21, 2015
7:00 pm • Hope Lutheran Church
FREE and open to the public.
Light refreshments will be served.
An award-winning, original play by Cleveland Heights resident Dr. Mary Weems. Set at the conclusion of Emmett Till’s funeral, the play is a conversation between him and Anne Frank. Emmett Louis Till was an African-American boy who was murdered in Mississippi at the age of 14 after reportedly flirting with a white woman. Annelies Marie “Anne” Frank was a diarist and writer who went into hiding during the holocaust and wrote about her experiences. She is one of the most discussed victims of the Holocaust. This conversation between two teenagers radically affected by cultural misunder-standings lends itself to meaningful and relevant dialogue in the talk-back.
Reservations are appreciated by calling HCC at 216.321.6775 or by visiting: www.heightscongress.org.
Talk-Back discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Tameka Taylor of Compass Consulting Services.
No photography, audio or video recording will be allowed during the play.
