Participants dive into the past and discover why History Matters. Within the museum gallery, the participants move through a series of memory stations with trailblazing African American editor and journalist J. Max Barber. There, they actively participate in multiple stories and interact with historic characters who were involved in the explosion of frustration and fear near Five Points. Along with the residents caught up in the conflict, they will witness the tenuous attempts at reconciliation that established the city’s narrative as one “too busy to hate.”This hour-long theatre experience is recommended for young adults, sixteen and up, based on language and sensitive subject matter. Visitors who take advantage of the experience should understand this is an immersive encounter with history that is challenging and provocative, yet stimulating, inspiring, and motivating as well.This History Matters production is part of a series of gallery-based offerings using museum theatre to explore the diversity of Atlanta’s past, present, and future, which seeks to literally place visitors inside history to learn why it matters to our community today.
