AWC panelists will help review, update resumes
By Darlene Scott
The Guardian, the play based on the murder of a young African-American boy in the 1950s, will return to campus this weekend due to popular demand.
The play recounts events surrounding the murder of 14-year-old Emmit Till in 1955 and how his death affected the spiritual growth of the nation. Till's murder and the court acquittal of the murderers, who later confessed, was a stimulus for the civil rights movement.
The play received such rave reviews when it showed here earlier this year that the African-American Studies Program decided to bring it back for an encore performance Friday.
The performance will begin at 7 p.m. in Cullen Performance Hall. Tickets will be sold for $10 at the box office the day of the show.
For more information, call (713) 743-2929.
