See the Dance: The History of American Minstrelsy

College of Charleston students will be able to attend and participate in a live taped recording of the NAACP award winning educational play, See The Dance: The History of American Minstrelsy in partnership with the Department of Theatre and Dance and with the Sustainability Literacy Institute.

As part of a national anti-bias education program, See The Dance teaches students about the history of blackface minstrelsy and its continued effects on racial and ethnic stereotyping in America.

Co-developed by Dr. Jason C. White in the College’s arts management program, this one-time performance will be recorded for both educational and commercial purposes. CofC students are invited to attend on Friday, August 31st at 7:00pm in the Chapel Theatre (172 Calhoun St, Charleston SC 29403). There is no late seating.

Admission is FREE but seating is limited to CofC students who present a valid student ID at the door. To avoid the rush at the door, CofC students should request a seat in advance using this link.
