PRODUCED BY JASON TAMIRU

Malthouse Theatre presents a twilight Summer Series of events featuring activists, spoken word artists, musical disrupters, dance and drum movement shakers, that honour the untold stories and unsung heroes of the Civil Rights Movement.

For over one month The Coopers Malthouse courtyard will transform into a hub of engaged discussions, powerful poetry, energetic movements, and politically and socially charged music.

‘Make no mistake Malthouse Theatre's Civil Rights Summer Series will blakenlighten your wonderful soul!’ – Jason Tamiru, Producer
