Description: Students will enjoy the preview of a dramatic piece that richly highlights

African American History as well as current events while exploring themes and topics

Join us as we go back in time to the 1800’s and push forward to present day with Gallion’s amazing stage play. It will trigger thought provoking conversations that will last long after the production has ended. 1800’s Vs 2020 is not just a stage play, but it will demonstrate and highlight the meaning of Black History for children and adults alike!

*There will be imagery of fake guns during the production.

Following the performance the Q&A session will allow time for an engaging

discussion between the director, cast and students/audience.

The play will serve as a secondary source that can be incorporated into instruction as

it aligns with the history/social studies common core state standards. Specifically, CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH.6-8.1, CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH.6-8.2,
