Beginning Aug. 28 and running through Nov. 3, actors of stage and screen will do a marathon Read In of: ‘Black Reconstruction in America’ by W.E.B. Du Bois
Over 30 actors from stage and screen have given their time to voice this historical text which we will air via YouTube Premiere beginning on the March on Washington 8/28 and culminating on Election Day 11/3.
This act was conceived in the tradition of a reading marathon as educational activism. Please follow @TheReadInSeries to participate in this action.
Scholars will provide commentary to provide insights into Du Bois’ work. It is our intention that this action will help a wide audience to understand why Black Lives Matter is the central issue of American history and culture.
We hope that you will join Housatonic Heritage for the 17 parts of this online reading that will begin on the day of the National Black Convention and culminate on Election Day. CLICK ON “HOME” BELOW
