Readers’ Theater- "Better to Light a Single Candle Than to Curse the Darkness"
Tuesday, April 8, 2014
6:30 PM-8:30 PM
How can we bring people of different backgrounds together and motivate them to combat prejudice? Create a Readers’ Theater—an oral performance of literature that includes dialogues, monologues, and songs from famous plays, movies and speeches—that vividly exposes the pain and price of direct and indirect prejudice.
Drexel University’s ELC has started the Readers’ Theater Program in an effort to shed light on the prejudice that still exists today. Domestic and international students, alumni, faculty, and professional staff have come together to perform in this moving production for the Drexel and Philadelphia communities. It is our hope that we will inspire others to take action and speak out against discrimination.
