Coming Soon—Walking Through the Valley: A Journey Towards Freedom

Join us for an exclusive and limited staging of Walking Through the Valley: A Journey Towards Freedom. In 1963, a young activist has been asked to alter the language in a speech he has written for what will become a historic event. He envisions a conversation with four historic freedom fighters in an effort to decide if a compromise with the "powers that be” will serve a greater good.

This play, written and directed by Atlanta History Center’s Addae Moon, focuses on the March on Washington and historic characters such as John Lewis, John Brown, Ida B. Wells, Sarah Grimke, and A. Philip Randolph.

After the 45-minute performance, student groups will participate in a short facilitated dialogue. Tickets include access to our exhibitions.

For tickets and information, please email Reservations are required.
