Warriors Don't Cry

> Tickets for this performance are being sold through WeShowUp.

Presented by The Bushnell and the National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ). This original, all-new, one woman play dramatizes Melba Patillo Beal's searing memoir of the battle to integrate Little Rock's central high in 1957 through the lens of a  contemporary young activist who questions: "What does a warriors look like? What is worth fighting for. Can a young person change the world?"

Employing video technology, original music, spoken word, poetry, and prose, Warriors Don't Cry is a catalyst for deeper discussion about social responsibility, civil discourse, social media, community engagement, and freedom.

> The performance will be followed by a talk-back hosted by NCCJ.
