Engaging Minds, Transforming Lives

King Creativity at Southwestern

The Colored Museum: Showcasing Exhibits of Cultural Identity

by Phaedra Jackson

This project has made great progress since its inception. There were two performances of the production on March 4th and 5th in the Alma Thomas Theater where about 300 people experienced the production. There were also productions around campus in the commons and in Mood-Bridwell for Family Days. I am pleased with the outcome and conversation that has surrounded this great project. As was stated in previous writings, this traditionally black play was performed with a multiracial cast consisting of both theatre majors and non-majors. This totally student driven project has been a great success because of the intense commitment of all those involved. I am pleased with the outcome and thankful to the King Creativity Fund for sponsoring such a well needed event on this campus.
