Written by Chicago playwright Ifa Bayeza, THE BALLAD OF EMMETT TILL is a beautifully told story of a boy who sparked the civil rights movement of the 1950s. Directed by Vincent Hardy, five San Antonio actors capture the simple joys and powerful truths at the heart of the story, creating a work of poetry and theatricality you will remember for the rest of your life.

Following the reading, Vincent Hardy, Assistant Professor, St. Philips College, and Jody Blake, Curator, Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts, lead a discussion along with the cast.
