The Selma Stories

The Selma Stories: Women of Courage is an original play written by Dr. Velicia Daniels, Theatre Director at Paseo Academy of Fine and Performing Arts. The play is a multi-media, interdisciplinary play that focuses on some of the women who were foot soldiers during the Civil Rights Movement, particularly during the voting rights marches from Selma to Montgomery in 1965. Dr. Daniels conducted interviews with many of the women (and some men) who participated in or witnessed these marches. These interviews have been transcribed, edited, and used as verbatim monologues to construct a theatrical exploration of one moment in the Civil Rights Movement. The Selma Stories: Women of Courage will be performed in Paseo Academy's Main Theatre on Wednesday, March 7th (the anniversary of "Bloody Sunday") and Thursday, March 8th at 7:00pm. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students and will be sold at the door. For more information call: 816-418-2275.
