Special Presentation

Written & Performed by Lee Weaver
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Civil Rights Movement Revisted

Friday, April 8, 2016 from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.

The Witness is a fictional love story presented within the context of real events that were central to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s - such as events surrounding Rosa Parks, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Medgar Evers, and the Monson Motor Lodge swimming pool confrontation in St. Augustine, among many others. This story is told from the perspective of Beauregard Stuart Lee ("Bo") a 69 year old self-professed former racist, born and raised in St. Augustine, Florida. In this presentation, Lee Weaver (as "Bo" ) directs his explanations and pleadings to freelance writer and documentary film maker M. J. Townes (off stage) played by Weaver's wife, Nanette. Set against one hundred large-screen projected photos of actual events, Bo shares his journey from ignorant Southern racist to a man willing to confront not only his own racism, but the America he hopes to change.

Includes a 15 minute intermission with light refreshments.
A Q&A with Lee Weaver will follow the presentation.

Admission by donation. No reservations required.
