Over 60 years after Brown v. Board of Education, New York City has one of the most segregated school systems in the United States. On May 30, join us for an evening of performance and conversation about segregation in New York City schools featuring the voices of those most affected: students.
New York City public high school students from the arts leadership program Epic NEXT will perform their original short play, Laundry City, which delivers a humorous and provocative take on what “Separate but Equal” means today. Following the performance, the students will participate in a discussion with the audience about what it will take to create more integrated schools and communities.
Epic NEXT is a top-tier educational and arts leadership program for youth run by the off-Broadway Epic Theatre Ensemble.
