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.

Ernest Harris:

My wife and I attended the Wed. 10AM performance and were stirred and delighted by the presentation- the show and the Q&A. We were probably the only non-school folks there- two seniors. Thank you Emily and Brian! Two comments- 1) if future venues permit, positioning your selves in the aisles, close to the audience might encourage more participation; 2) These attitudes are still, sadly prevalent; I too often hear them expressed when with small groups of men- not so much the 'N' word, but the attitude. Emily your performance was captivating; and Brian your leadership warm, humorous(at times) and welcoming. Thank you both again and Bushnell. Ernie Harris

now in life now can ordinary people just say the n word when ever they want
