Anne and Emmett
Noted journalist, author and playwright Janet Langhart Cohen will premiere her critically-acclaimed one-act play Anne & Emmett led by award-winning director Talvin Wilks.
Anne & Emmett is an imaginary conversation between Anne Frank and Emmett Till, both victims of racial intolerance and hatred. Frank is the 13-year-old Jewish girl whose diary provided a gripping perspective of the Holocaust. Till is the 14-year old African-American boy whose brutal murder in Mississippi sparked the American Civil Rights Movement.
