Join Faye Sholitan of Interplay Jewish Theater for the Spring 2021 season of our script reading club! In honor of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we will gather around the virtual table to read and discuss theater scripts that thematically connect to RBG’s life and legacy. Come for one, two, or all three dates!

About the play: African-Americans traveling through the Jim Crow South rightfully feared for their lives. But armed with Victor Green’s running list (1936-63) of vetted restaurants, gas stations and lodgings, they improved their chances of survival. Ramsey’s thoughtful and thoroughly engaging play takes us to a troubled Jefferson City, MO, 1953, where the blows of race hatred meet the power of basic human decency.

Free copies of this script are available by download through the museum upon registration.
