Living the Legacy

METCO, the longest continuously running voluntary school desegregation program in the country, which began in the late 1960s.

"50 Years of Love and Struggle in America"
This powerful one man performance highlights the key moments in the fight for racial justice over the past 50 years since passage of the “Voting Rights Act of 1965.″ From “Black Power” to “Post-Racial,” this show uses a string of characters, archival video, and the music that moved a generation to illustrate the best and sometimes worst of the African-American experience. More
"Putting the Civil back in Civil Discourse"
Far too much of the social and political discourse we see today is defined by anger, polarization, and recrimination. Few seem to be happy with the tone of our national discourse. I guarantee the ones that don’t want it to change are either sick or cashing in on it. Most believe it is as bad as it has ever been. More
"A Story of Emergence"
We know that the greater public narrative of urban areas is often one-sided and negative. They are stories of Black communities that for years were plagued with violence, drugs and decay.
This narrative has led to a skewed perception from those outside of these communities, and some within it.
"America is a Civil Rights Story"
Through live character portrayal and video, “Shared Dreams” depicts how MLK’s “Poor Peoples Campaign” was a turning point in intersectional advocacy. A broad cross-section of cultural groups came together to fight against poverty. Had King lived to be the face of this young movement, it would have changed the way we look at race and social issues. We believe that it would have been a great leap forward in our American Civil Rights Story. More

The Diversity Formula
"Helping Doctors 'See' Patients, broadening the research lens"
Cultural competence has never been more critical in medical and technical training. The massive cultural changes that are taking place will have a direct impact on training and research across the STEM fields. Many of the hereto-normative and traditional Eurocentric approaches to teaching are being challenged. Our interactive, educational and entertaining training model gives medical professionals the ability to navigate cultural differences in a changing medical landscape. More
“Theatrical Training for Campus Leaders”
ACT-tion! is a theatrical training model for addressing the complex issues of race, gender and cultural inequities on campus. The ACT-tion! program is a social justice, student-led theater ensemble. This group uses improvisational techniques to illustrate real situations that students encounter, but are often mishandled or avoided outright because individuals lack the cultural language to address them appropriately.
