Unheard Voices Performance and Post-Show Talkback

Conceived by Judy Tate, Unheard Voices is an original monologue piece, with singing and drumming, by the award-winning writers of the American Slavery Project. Up to 30,000 men, women, and children from New York’s Colonial era are buried in the African Burial Ground in Lower Manhattan. Based on specific burials, each monologue gives one of them voice and honors those African descendants -- enslaved and free -- who were buried without their names.  

Performance will be followed by a post-show talkback.

In collaboration with the Women’s Studies Program, the Hofstra Cultural Center, the Center for Civic Engagement, and the Center for “Race,” Culture and Social Justice.


Date: Tuesday, September 17, 2019

Time: 6:30 p.m.

Location: Toni and Martin Sosnoff Theater, John Cranford Adams Playhouse, South Campus

Join us as we recognize the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans to North America and the ongoing experience of African Americans with a series of programming titled The Legacy 1619-2019. Programming reflects the journey of African Americans over four centuries and the hopes of a people, past and present, with historical reenactments, lectures, poetry readings, and panel discussions on a range of subjects. Each is a work in progress and is important in moving beyond the last 400 years.
