Each year, Black History Month celebrates many of the same civil rights leaders. Playwright Larissa Brewington’s out to change that, introducing “the stuff we don’t hear about.” Through Thursday, February 19, Herberger Lunch Time Theater presents Brewington’s March, highlighting women’s contributions to the sit-ins, protests, boycotts, and marches of the 1950s and early 1960s. Women like Claudette Colvin, a teenager who was arrested for not giving up her bus seat nine months before Rosa Parks was. Or Diane Nash, a coordinator of lunch counter protesters and the Freedom Riders, who was repeatedly jailed and declined bail.
Showtime’s 12:10 p.m. Thursday, February 12, on the Kax Stage, 222 East Monroe Street. Admission is $6. Catered lunch is available. Get tickets and more details at www.herbergertheater.org or 602-252-8497.
Tuesdays-Thursdays, 12:10 p.m. Starts: Feb. 10. Continues through Feb. 19, 2015
