Dr. Clyde Robertson and the Southern University Center for African and African-American Studies invites you to attend its Annual Kwanzaa Celebration.
The Center for African and African-American Studies (CAAAS) of Southern University at New Orleans was formally established in 1989. As part of Southern University at New Orleans’ continuing and growing commitment to international and cultural studies, the Center seeks to provide innovative African and African-American Studies Programs in teaching, research, and public service.
This year’s event will present the stage play, El Hajj Malik, The Life and Times of Malcolm X, written by Norbert R. Davidson and directed by Anthony Bean.
The Kwanza Celebration takes place on Monday, November 12, 2018 at the University Conference Center, 11:00 AM.
The Anthony Bean Community Theatre will also be receiving the prestigious “August Wilson American Century Cycle Award” on November 12, 2018.
August Wilson is one of the four or five greatest American playwrights. This award honors theater companies that have completed his epic 10-play cycle. It is sponsored by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, his hometown newspaper, and co-sponsored by the August Wilson House, his childhood home, with the collaboration of Constanza Romero Wilson and the August Wilson Estate. So far (fall, 2018), some 15 companies of every size have qualified; the Anthony Bean Community Theatre was the tenth.
