Frank and Katrina Basile Theater, 450 W. Ohio Street, Indianapolis, IN 46202

Event Description:

Featuring Indiana historian Dr. James Madison, poet Dr. Maria Hamilton Abegunde, SongSquad, and actors from the Indiana Historical Society’s Museum Theater program, historic documents, images, and music will be used to help he community reflect on the history of race. 

There’s a new twist on this annual signature event. You’ll still get to hear fresh insights from thoughtful thinkers and doers with unique perspectives. And we will continue to showcase the power of the arts, humanities, and religion in shaping the world. But alongside all this, we’ve designed an event that will allow you to practice YOUR power in tackling intractable issues like race. 

By bringing the past alive through music, dramatic readings, interactive opportunities, and meaningful reflection, we’ll do more than model civic and civil dialogue. We will connect you to opportunities, inspire an open mind, and strengthen your conviction to engage in these important conversations.

Walk-ins welcome, but RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 11.

Presented by Spirit & Place, Indiana Historical Society, IPS Crispus Attucks Museum, and SongSquad.

This event has been made possible through a grant from Indiana Humanities in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Humanities.
