Tougaloo College presents #WAKEUP
The Division of Humanities, Department of English/Creative Writing & Theatre Emphasis presents the innovative theatrical spring production of #Wakeup!
#WAKEUP opens our eyes to the deep causes of African American issues in society; the issues that is typically uncomfortable to speak about. Not just about racism but conversations that should benefit all sides of the spectrum. Issues of gun violence, police brutality, rape culture, race relation/politics, racial representation in politics, establishment in society, gender equality, voting equality, stereotypes, mean girl syndromes, the business of the black church and more. These conversations are shared through the presentation of a unique blend of dark comedy, drama through scenes and monologues, music, dance choreography, spoken words and poetry, visual art, and songs.
This incredible production is lead, directed, performed, choreographed, and written by The Tougaloo College's Encore Theatre Ensemble, and the Dramatic and Creative Writers. It will run March 5th-8th during Humanities Week at 7:00pm.
