Living Voices at NAAM: Our Revolution

Living Voices offers a unique combination of theatre, video and live interaction that brings life to history for people of all ages. Performances feature a solo actor/educator accompanied by film footage, photographs, period artwork and images blended with audio.

Join living voices for this lively performance about the story of a  common citizens who fought in the American Revolution to bring these five words to life: “All men are created equal.” In 1776, no government had ever made such an idea the cornerstone of its existence before–and they were words that had even greater significance to a black colonist. Audiences are invited to participate in pre and post show discussions to develop cultural awareness, honor diversity, and deepen their understanding of history and its connections to contemporary issues.
