Liberty, Equality, and Fireworks! (2016)

liberty-thumbThis remarkable new play for young audiences about the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s is ready to come to your community in 2015 to inspire important discussions about freedom and equality. Set in a history museum, the play’s characters (a group of 4th grade students) experience key elements of this important part of our national history when iconic images from that period come to life and begin to move and speak. Pollyanna has partnered with the LBJ Presidential Library on the creation of educational and dramaturgical materials for this production. Resources for parents and teachers are available that explore the issue surrounding the Civil Rights Movement and how to help children through this very difficult topic in an effort to facilitate constructive and empowering family conversations. Best for students grades 3-6.
