Last year marked the 50th Anniversary of the Modern Civil Rights Movement and the 150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. The commemorations are ongoing, so take part with a play based on the life of Justice Thurgood Marshall. The one-man play reflects on Justice Marshall's childhood, his inner-city adolescence up to his being named to the Supreme Court. From Jan. 16 to Feb. 27, the theater will host The Thurgood Panel Discussions, an event series that explores the play's themes and how they relates to us today. On Jan. 16, the discussion focuses on "The Impact of the Civil Rights Movement"; Jan. 23: "We are not where we were, how do we get back"; Jan. 30, "the relationship between the African-Americans and the Jews through today"; Feb. 27, "A Tale of Two Cities: A vivid oral history of Sarasota's Civil Rights."
