Told through oration, music, and dance, Africa to America is an interdisciplinary performance that chronicles the history, heritage, and legacy of African Americans. This rich and powerful experience depicts the struggles, determination, and triumphs as seen through the eyes of many African ancestors and descendants who survived the voyage from Africa to America. The audience will see representation from some of the most notable icons, including Harriet Tubman, Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Angela Davis, Rosa Parks, and the first African-American President and First Lady, Barack & Michelle Obama. The script originates from the mind of Dr. Wendy R. Coleman, Alabama State University's Theatre & Dance Department Chairwoman. The production is re-imagined/directed by Dr. DeRon S. Williams, Assistant Professor of Theatre/Directing, with original poetry and choreography from ECSU students.
