Teen Time: Get Ready For Banned Book Week

Tuesday, September 9, 2014
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Did you know the two Pulitzer Prize winning plays of August Wilson, The Piano Lesson and Fences, are banned in some places? Working with actor Wali Jamaal, we will explore August Wilson's favorite play, Joe Turner's Come and Gone. We'll act some, read some, learn about Wilson, the Hill and what "our song" might be. Labs On Location will attend for the first meeting of this extraordinary opportunity to bring together history, art, theater, social justice,and situations today that reflect what characters in the play went through. What happens when other people decide a play or book should be banned? Who profits? Who suffers? How? Let's talk about all of it! We'll also have a lot of snacks.
