The Doorway Arts Ensemble and Montgomery College's Arts Alive Theatre present "Hercules in Russia" by Allyson Currin in Theatre 2 of the Cultural Arts Center on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus from February 10 through March 4.
A community panel discussion will immediately follow the February 19 matinee performance, featuring Dr. Alonzo Smith, professor of history on the Rockville Campus. Dr. Smith and his fellow panelists will explore the post-Reconstruction era in the South and beyond, specifically talking about the surprising or "divergent" paths that African Americans took as individuals tried to claim and make use of their freedom. This topic is inspired by the story of Jim Hercules.
