Warriors Don't Cry

The Bushnell® is very proud of the one-woman play Warriors Don't Cry, showing tonight at 7:30 p.m.

Not to be missed, this is a play depicting the Little Rock Nine memoirs by Melba Pattillo Beals, who integrated Central High School in 1957. The inspiring performance chronicles the arduous and violent year in which nine black students risked their lives for a good education.

In the post-show Q&A, audience members explore themes of bullying, hate speech, and other issues of contemporary relevance.
