In this launch performance, the audience will see three original historical monologues or perspectives. These original monologues were created using three different types of inspiration. My grandmother, Cora Thorpe, attended Roulhack High, a colored school in Chipley, Florida. Ruby Bridges was the first black student to attend William Frantz Elementary School, and Elizabeth Eckford was one of the first black teenagers to attend Little Rock Central High School.
