Community grant recipient @aabhau will be at the @spartanburglibraries this weekend as her project, ”Untitled Reconstruction Project” comes to life! Be sure to attend this powerful and historically significant performance. ・・・
Untitled Reconstruction Project is a performance based on the 1871 testimony of Spartanburg County residents who were terrorized by the Ku Klux Klan. The show combines historical text, original writing by the cast, and discussion facilitated by Speaking Down Barriers. Our ensemble is made up of actors, writers, poets, lawyers, and historians. "Untitled Reconstruction Project" asks, how can we trace the journey from 1871 to 2017? What is different, and what has stayed the same?
Join us in October at the Library Headquarters for the performance, and also to see the exhibit curated by the Library's Kennedy Room staff. This exhibit will explore the Era of Reconstruction in Spartanburg, as well as genealogical information about the historical figures in the play. Performances run approximately 2 hours including a 5-minute pause. —
