Atrium 360° - Voices of a People’s History of the United States

Voices seeks to educate and inspire a new generation working for social justice. This free performance marks the culmination of a yearlong project with New York City students at the Maxine Greene High School for Imaginative Inquiry, a New York City public school located at the Martin Luther King Jr. Educational Campus, cofounded by Lincoln Center Education. The students will perform their selections along with actors Brian Jones and Susan Pourfar and special musical guests Celisse Henderson and Falu Shah. Voices of a People’s History of the United States brings to life the extraordinary history of ordinary people who built the movements that made the United States what it is today, ending slavery and Jim Crow, protesting war and the genocide of Native Americans, creating unions and the eight-hour work day, advancing women’s rights and gay liberation, and struggling to right wrongs of the day. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
