N.C. A&T Theater Arts Program to Present “Detroit ’67”
GREENSBORO, N.C. (April 4, 2018)— The Theatre Program at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (N.C. A&T) will present “Detroit ‘67” directed by N.C. A&T Theatre Arts professor Miller Lucky Jr. on April 12-15 and April 19-22 at the Paul Robeson Theater.
Written by Dominique Morrisseau, the stage play takes the audience on a journey to 1967, Detroit, Michigan, where Chelle and her brother Lank turn their basement into an after-hours party lounge. As tensions rise in their basement, the climate of the city above quickly becomes hostile, giving way to the violent race riots of 1967. The classic Motown Sound is the backdrop for a chaotic time in American History where race, equality and justice are confronted in homes and the streets.
The A&T Theatre Arts Program is nationally ranked by Black Broadway as one of the top 5 theatre programs for African-American students.
