Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History says
Project1VOICE presents an international salute to African American theater with a staged reading of HOME by Samm-Art Williams to honor the 35th anniversary year of the play’s Broadway debut. This brilliantly inventive, lyrically expressive play features Reginald L. Wilson, Monique J. Palmer, and Aku Kadogo, and is directed by Woodie King, Jr.

Free and open to the public. For more information please call (313) 494-5800.

The fifth annual 1VOICE/1PLAY/1DAY event will also commemorate another milestone - this one in civil rights - the 150th anniversary of the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution. This amendment ended slavery and involuntary servitude in America--officially making the United States of America home for any then-enslaved persons and their descendants. This international theater experience - including over 30 black theaters, museums and diverse institutions throughout the world - will feature prominent actors including Negro Ensemble Company (NEC) alums and local enthusiasts. This event will explore the meaning of home - is it a place, a state of mind or both? The reading will be followed by a panel discussion.
