About this EventView map
From the Eyes of Mary McLeod Bethune, conceived by Sharon Moore and directed by Viera Whye is a vivid depiction of the epic march of Blacks from slavery to freedom. Bethune (1875-1955), was a pioneer educator, government official, and founder of Bethune-Cookman College. Richly informative and entertaining, the show is relevant to many of the contemporary issues of American democracy.
A brief discussion about the importance of Black theater will introduce this powerful performance. Sponsored by SJSU’s Department of African American Studies.
