The Mountaintop

Posted: January 15, 2013 by Donna Bivens in Uncategorized

cstMT.265x417Union of Minority Neighborhoods’ BBDP and Community Change Inc. collaborated with the Central Square Theater by co-presenting at  the talk-back for the their new play  The Mountaintop this past Friday. The sold-out performance was both moving and thought-provoking  as we were invited to imagine that last night of Dr. King’s life.

Our wide ranging talk-back discussion touched on many issues: the nature of systemic racism, our images of God, our resistances to embracing the full complexity of our history, and our own barriers to “picking up the baton”.

The play is part of Central Square Theaters celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. It’s also a great way to celebrate Dr. King’s birthday. We highly recommend it and encourage you to attend and to use UMN’s promo code (UMN) to get a 10% discount.
