Fourteen: A Theatrical Performance Opens


Jun 19, 2019 to Aug 10, 2019
09:30 AM until 05:00 PM


For a limited production run beginning on June 19 (Juneteenth)—the holiday that commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the Confederate States of America—visitors can experience Fourteen, a theatrical performance that aims to shed new light on the Reconstruction era and the ratification of the 14th Amendment. Through dramatic interpretation of original texts, such as Frederick Douglass’s open letter “To My Old Master,” the 30-minute performance will bring to life the leaders, influential figures, and everyday Americans who were central to the era. Created in collaboration and consultation with nationally recognized, award-winning artists and scholars, FOURTEEN: A Theatrical Performance will be performed in the Center’s Bank of America Theater—adjacent to the main exhibit space.

After opening June 19, Fourteen will run two times a day June 20-26 and will run four times a day June 27-Aug. 10.


$14.50, adults; $11, kids.
