Our Story as told by Mitch Capel
Sunday, February 16, 4pm
This multi-media production traces the journeys of a select few of African Americans through the perils and challenges of navigating plantation life, the civil war and being recognized and treated as human. With the utilization of great ancestral poets and writers, the nationally recognized storyteller and actor, Mitch Capel, breathes life into these individuals and resurrects their struggle for existence. He gives his work such a breadth and openness that you feel a space of history around him when he works... he evokes the bigger picture and occupies its center. “Our Story” is a culmination of over 40 years of research and performance and will enlighten, uplift and entertain every fiber of your heart and soul.
