First performed on stage in early 2020, this living museum featured a few everyday, ordinary yet extraordinary local African-Americans of Dallas telling their stories. These selected natives tell and show us what life was like in Dallas from the late 1800's through 1960's. Audiences heard true accounts of local life, family, and community in the realms and aftermath of slavery, reconstruction, Jim Crow, and the Civil Rights movement in Dallas.
Our volunteers work with Dallas natives to record and preserve stories about generations of family, community, and life in Dallas.
