On Thursday, February 27 from 5:30-6:45pm, Florida Studio Theatre presents the panel discussion “A Tale of Two Cities: A vivid oral history of Sarasota’s Civil Rights” culminating in the community question, “Where do we go from here?”
The League has secured a limited number of seats for this free presentation, and they are all “spoken for”.
Panelists include: FST Associate Director, Kate Alexander(co-moderator), The Honorable Judge Charles E. Williams, 12th Judicial Circuit, Sarasota Herald-Tribune Opinion Editor, Tom Tryon, Vice Mayor Willie Shaw, Psychologist Dr. Eddy Regnier, Sarasota County Commissioner Carolyn Mason and Mr. Trevor Harvery President of the Sarasota County Branch, NAACP.
The discussion is in conjunction with the FST’s production “Thurgood”, a play about the first African American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. This is an important time to present Thurgood to audiences as 2013 marked the 50th Anniversary of the Modern Civil Rights Movement and also the 150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. This is your opportunity to be a part of a vast community-wide dialogue in honor of the play and the anniversaries.
Tickets to the play are not included, and may be purchased from the theater.
