Special Offer: $10 off Native Guard at the Hertz Stage, September 26 – October 19, 2014

History and memory collide in this theatrical staging of Pulitzer Prize winner and national Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey's searing poetry.

Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for poetry, U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey’s Native Guard will take to the stage with music, image, and text in this special Hertz Stage world premiere. Native Guard juxtaposes the deeply personal experiences of Trethewey, a child of a then-illegal marriage between her black mother and white father living in 1960s Mississippi, with the experience of a soldier in the Native Guard, the first African-American Union troop in the Civil War, who was charged with guarding white Confederate captives. Years after her mother's tragic death, Trethewey reclaims her memory, just as she reclaims the voices of the black soldiers whose service has been all but forgotten.

As part of the Atlanta History Center’s Civil War Sesquicentennial programming and partnerships, we are pleased to partner with the Hertz Stage and offer an exclusive $10 discount for this remarkable show. Use promo code AHC10 to receive your discount*. Native Guard is at the Hertz Stage September 26 – October 19, 2014.  For tickets and information, click here or call 404.733.5000. 

*Not valid on previously purchased tickets or in combination with any other offer. Subject to availability.
