Warriors Don't Cry - The Bushnell and NCCJ


A one-woman play about fighting bias and discrimination and working for social change.

 Join us February 21st, 6:30pm at The Bushnell


Using video, original music, spoken word, poetry and prose, Warriors Don't Cry aims to inspire deeper discussion about social responsibility, civil discourse, freedom -  and much more. The performance will be followed by a talk-back hosted by NCCJ, featuring the actress and a group of NCCJ ANYTOWN-ers.

This new play dramatizes Melba Patillo Beal’s autobiography centered around the harrowing battle to integrate Little Rock’s central high in 1957 through the perspective of a modern activist asking questions like:  "What does a warrior look like? What is worth fighting for? Can a young person change the world?"
