MLK Day Follow-Up: FORJ Presents True Story Theatre
January 23 @ 8:00 am - 7:00 pm
Join us for an interactive event on the evening of January 23rd with True Story Theater. This will be an enlightening follow-up event to the city wide MLK celebration. With the help of the True Story Theater, we will further explore this year’s theme of “Know Your Neighbor”. Come learn and connect as the theater troupe performs the spectrum of our lived experiences as residents of Newton. It will be an evening filled with stories that will delight and also challenge us to think more deeply about what it means to live in neighborhoods that are truly inclusive.
FORJ (Families Organizing for Racial Justice) is partnering with the Harmony Foundation and the Human Rights Commission to bring True Story Theater to Newton. Using improv, the actors will build empathy, respect, and understanding across differences by honoring true life stories. (https://truestorytheater.com/)
