Jewell Parker Rhodes - Ghost Boys

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, April 18, 2018 - 10:30am to 11:30am

It is said that ghosts roam the earth when they have unfinished business. Jerome has barely started life when, at age 12, he is shot by a police officer who mistakes his toy gun for a real one. Jerome meets Emmett Till, another ghost from history with a similar story. These deaths have a lasting impact on all involved, including the police officer and his school-age daughter. The story raises urgent and timely questions including who speaks for those who can no longer speak for themselves.

This event is free to attend and open to the public, however, reservations are required for school groups interested in attending. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
