The Brownsville Project: Community Dialogue
November 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Central Jersey Community Coalition invites you to “The Brownsville Project: Community Dialogue.”
This NJ premiere of “The Brownsville Project” is an exciting opportunity to experience interactive theatre. Inspired by an invisible yet powerful overlap in their family history, Clory Jackson and Caroline Hann have embarked on a creative journey to explore and confront the history and social impact of Brownsville, a forgotten community that was nested in Frostburg, Maryland in the 1860’s. This event seeks to explore the story of a place where race, class, gender, and family pride meet.
Clory Jackson is the Founder of “The Brownsville Project.” She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Drama from Spelman College in Atlanta, GA and then a Master of Fine Arts in Acting from Penn State University in State College, PA. Caroline Hann is the Partner of “The Brownsville Project” and co-artistic director of The Meta Theatre Company, a social justice theatre company that believes theatre is a pathway to justice. Clory is proud to be from Frostburg, MD. With Caroline’s partnership, she is excited to use theatre to expand the historic narrative of her hometown to include the history of black Appalachian families like hers.
