FREE Virtual Storytime featuring the Alliance Theatre’s show ‘Sit In’

Wednesday, January 20th, 2021

Your child is invited to a Children’s Virtual Storytime, Mon. Feb 1 at 1:30PM featuring a new piece from the Alliance Theatre called. “Sit-In.”

Register online here. 

Created by Atlanta’s bestselling author, playwright, and Civil Rights Activist Pearl Cleage, “Sit-In” follows three friends as they learn about the sit-ins of the Civil Rights era, and powerfully apply those lessons to issues they–and we all–face today. This program was brought to you in part by PNC, the presenting sponsor for Black History Month programming at The Center.

At the completion of the story experience, you will be joined by Alliance Theatre Artist Maya Lawrence who will walk students through an art project themed to compliment the video.

An accompanying video will feature a pre-recorded conversation with the playwright Pearl Cleage and others to discuss thoughts and ideas for continuing the conversation with your children after they’ve seen the piece. Run time of the video is 30 minutes.

Register online here. 

The program is online and hosted by the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta.
