Name: University of Michigan-Flint Theatre and Dance presents My Children! My Africa!
Date: February 1, 2019
Time: 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM EST
The search for a means to an end to apartheid inspires Mr "M", a black South African school teacher, to invite a white South African student named Isabel to join his student Thami in an inter-school debate competition. He hopes this will demonstrate that even in Apartheid-era South Africa, people of different races can work together toward a common goal. Pressure on Thami erupts into a tumultuous conflict between the black township students and the “old-fashioned” black teacher. This astonishingly provocative drama explores the struggle between choosing actions of constructive dialogue or destructive violence in order to accomplish immediate justice and social change.
