"1619: Journey of a People, The Musical" packs generations of history into a musical theater experience that traces the American journey toward freedom and equality. The musical features a cast of singers, actors, spoken word artists, and dancers who reflect on the past while tackling critical contemporary social issues. "1619" was created and produced by Ted Williams, chairman of the social science department at Kennedy-King College in Chicago, a professor of political science, former host of the WYCC-PBS television program "The Professors," and a professional actor and speaker. There will be a Q&A after the performance.
