"...Until Justice Rolls Down Like Waters, And Righteousness Like A Mighty Stream."

   
For One Hundred years, African Americans have searched to find their place in this world.  In 1955 a campaign of non-violence was launched in an effort to bring about equality within our society.  Peaceful protests marched into many southern cities to combat the racial prejudices that were very evident.  We shall be free became one of many songs that inspired protestors as they were beaten, jailed and in some cases, killed.  Martin Luther King Jr. became the voice of the movement as he helped to organize the masses toward a common goal.  This goal enabled many to believe that they could fly over the many racial barriers that stood in their way.  In the end, a celebration of good times is bestowed upon those whose perseverance eventually paved the way for actualization of the American dream.

"Bye baby!" These words were spoken by 14 year old Emmet Till, an African American boy,  on a sunny summer afternoon outside a store in Money, Mississippi.  Today, these words would go virtually unnoticed and would in most cases not even be considered flirtatious. However, in 1955, these words were extremely dangerous especially when spoken to a white women.  Emmet's life, although extinguished at a young age, aided in sparking the beginning of the Civil Rights movement that would eventually engulf a nation.  

  This Production retraces the beginnings of the Civil Rights struggle from Reconstruction to present day.  By examining the barriers that went up with the implementation of Reconstruction,  the one hundred years of chipping away at those barriers, and the movement that eventually knocked the barriers down,  one will have a better understanding about this noble movement.  This understanding will be further strengthened by the Productions focus on identifying various people, places and organizations that played a very important role during the struggle for freedom.
