A Great and Happy People: The Words of Civil Rights
Presented by The Committee to Defend the Enlightenment
Readings of some of the most stirring, exhilarating and hilarious words that form the backbone of America’s spirit of civil rights. Interpreted by artists, legal scholars and historians, these are some of the speeches, letters, court opinions and essays from the Revolution to the Clinton Administration that are worth remembering—and rediscovering. By focusing on the texts’ backgrounds and the subsequent influence each had on modern America, we think the result will a deeper, richer interpretation for us and the audience. During the show, instead of presenting one piece, pausing for applause, then quickly moving onto the next, we’ll interview the actors and their scholar counterparts to see what each learned in the process.
