American tales untold II
(14 -18 yrs)
BY JEREMIAH FLEMING AT YOUR SCHOOL
TO BOOK ALL YEAR ROUND
“Until we are all free, we are none of us free” – Emma Lazarus.
American Tales Untold II is a show of two gripping stories about discrimination and mistrust in the troubled black history of America. However, more than just two stories, American Tales Untold II is as relevant today as ever! There is a lot of anger and intolerance towards immigrants, migrants and refugees these days. What does it mean to be different in today’s society and why are countries so hostile to people fleeing economic crises and political persecution? By looking through the lens of a different time and place, students of today have the chance to see that racism and intolerance are twin evils that can rise up around them at any time.
American Tales Untold II strives to be much more than just an interesting show about America’s Jim Crow past. It wants to open up awareness within the young pupils of how they think (or perhaps don’t think!) about the minorities and underprivileged groups in their society.
