Collision Project Will Examine John Lewis' MARCHCollision Project Will Examine John Lewis' MARCH
by BWW News Desk - Jun 26, 2017

The Alliance Theatre has assembled a diverse group of 21 students for the 16th Palefsky Collision Project, an annual program that gives high-school students a platform to tackle important social issues.  Guided by the Alliance's Mellon Playwright in Residence Pearl Cleage, director Patrick McColery, and assistant director Rodney Williams, participants are encouraged to find and claim their own voices within a judgment free zone of creativity and community. This innovative program challenges metro Atlanta teens to 'collide' with a classic text and make it their own.  This year's catalytic text will be Congressman John Lewis's graphic novel March.  As a young student activist, Congressman Lewis was inspired by the 1958 comic book Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story.  Now he brings the Civil Rights Movement to life for a whole new generation.  (more...)
