Impact Theatre's Inaugural Town Hall Gathering

Arts & Culture

On Sunday, May 22nd, the Impact Theatre will be hosting their inaugural Town Hall Gathering, where “Agents of Impact” will showcase their interpretations of local African American elders and Holocaust survivor’s stories through a medley of art, music, poetry, dance and theater. The event comes following a series of interviews that were conducted between 13 Jewish and Black high school students last month, where Holocaust survivors and Black elders who lived in the segregated South share their personal experiences of suffering from oppression, segregation, and persecution. The students (best known as “Agents of Impact”) will recap their elder’s stories at the event, and express what they’ve learned from those stories, including what course of action they plan to take as a result. Inspired by the relationship between Martin Luther King Jr. and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, Impact Theatre seeks to create “Agents of Impact” by connecting survivors of the Holocaust and segregated South with tomorrow’s champions for peace and social justice. Community partners leading the Impact Theatre’s initiative are The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee, Temple Sinai, and Newtown Alive! This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. The Impact Theatre Inaugural Town Hall Gathering will be held at Riverview High School Performing Arts Center; 1 Ram Way, Sarasota on Sunday, May 22nd - 2:30 pm– 4:30 pm.
