Multimedia docudrama depicting Civil Rights Movement April 11

By Lexi Ryan, media relations assistant

A chronological inspection of critical moments in America’s history, as seen through the lens of the Civil Rights Movement will take a Northwest Missouri State University stage on April 11.  

“A Walk in Their Shoes: Epic Moments in the Civil Rights Movement” begins at 7 p.m., Tuesday, April 11, in the Charles Johnson Theater at the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building. It is free and open to the public.

The production is a multimedia docudrama featuring live music, poetry and reenactments. It is the creation of Kansas City native Angela Hagenbach, a singer, narrator, commercial talent and workshop presenter.

Northwest’s Intercultural Advocacy Committee is sponsoring the event with support from the Missouri Humanities Council, the Missouri Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Northwest Academic Initiative.

“This program will be entertaining, with live singing and instrumental music performances,” Dr. David Shadinger, an associate professor of communication and chair of the Intercultural Advocacy Committee, said. “Hopefully people will come away with a deeper understanding of the societal challenges and cultural accomplishments of our country.”

The Intercultural Advocacy Committee promotes and fosters exposure to the multiple cultures represented at Northwest.
