      EVENT DETAILS
      Mike Wiley in BREACH OF PEACE

      On May 24, 1961, 19-year old Jean Thompson boarded a Trailways bus in Montgomery, Alabama with 11 other young Freedom Riders bound for New Orleans - and history. Within three months, approximately 300 other riders took up the mantle to desegregate buses, following the path of the first brave few. Mobs brutally assaulted many, while others were arrested. Breach of Peace is based on true accounts of surviving participants of the Freedom Riders and others involved in the early struggle for African-American equality. This solo-play is a living monument to those remarkable young men and women of various races, religions, and backgrounds who rose to face the dangers of fighting for just and equal treatment for all.

      Cost: 5.00 to 10.00
