Elaine Race Massacre A dramatic presentation in music, motion, and verse

In late September 1919, in Elaine, Ark., about 400 Black share croppers protested against very miserable working conditions. Within a 24-hour period, about 90% of them were unjustly murdered by white vigilantes, a horrible event that has never been properly chronicled in the history books. Yet the legal consequences of this event (in the Supreme Court) have been a precursor for the eventual American Civil Rights Movement.

Actors will read selections from Chester Johnson’s beautiful poetic rendering about one of the worst genocides in American history, with accompanying dance by Trinity’s Movement Choir and a multimedia presentation. Part of Trinity Church Wall Street’s observance of Black History Month.

Sponsored by Trinity’s Lively Arts Committee. Information: Melissa Hayes at mhayes@trinitywallstreet.org.
