    Name: ArtsWave Days 2019: Freedom Celebration
    Date: February 23, 2019
    Time: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM EST
    Event Description:
    What better way to celebrate Black History Month, the 55th anniversary of Freedom Summer and the arts than to experience it all together? In recognition of all of this and the 2019 ArtsWave Community Campaign, our partner, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is offering free admission all day. While at the Freedom Center, you’ll experience a variety of arts that tell the story and struggle for civil rights. That’ll begin as you enter and experience our lobby performances by Elementz and various ensembles from the School for Creative and Performing Arts. In the Grand Hall, you’ll see MYCincinnati present works from composers of the African Diaspora. Cincinnati Black Theatre Company will perform monologues from “For Colored Girls.” Sharon McCollum of Shanay Productions will recreate an urban radio show, similar to WCIN during the 1969 civil rights era. City Gospel Mission’s Princesses Ballet will portray freedom through dance. The Children’s Theatre will explore Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, through excerpts from Martin’s Dream, an unforgettable one-man show. It’s all free as part of the 2019 ArtsWave Community Campaign!
