Family Friendly Play- "Lift Every Voice"

Lift Every Voice: The Black Experience in the Heartland will be presented at Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site on Friday, August 26, 2016 at 7 pm. The original play produced by Bright Star Touring Theater is ideal for kids ages 8-12, but all can enjoy this engaging performance! Admission is free but reservations are required by calling 314-842-1867 ext. 230.       
 

Lift Every Voice was designed especially to celebrate the National Park Service’s Centennial and many Black Americans who made a difference in the American Midwest. Watch the pages of history come to life with interactive scenes: from the first black homesteaders reaching Nicodemus, KS to the Little Rock Nine on their first day of school. Meet famous leaders, groundbreakers and heroes such as Charles Young, Abraham Lincoln, and George Washington Carver in this engaging and educational performance. Audiences will learn about many great National Parks throughout the Midwest, such as the Lincoln Home in Springfield, IL, Brown v Board of Education in Topeka, KS, and The Homestead National Monument of America in Beatrice, NE. This production also includes empowering songs such as “Oh Freedom,” “I’m Gonna Eat at the Welcome Table,” “For Lincoln and Liberty Too,” and “Home on the Range.”
