At the Conciliation Project, We understand the temptation to ignore history and whitewash the present with niceties. But just saying “we live in a post-race world” or “ the glass ceiling has been shattered” does not make this true. And even if we choose politeness over candor, that doesn’t mean centuries of hurt have been healed.
As a creative social justice organization, our nine dramatic works challenge audiences to rethink their beliefs and prejudices by:
• Presenting previously hidden historical accounts.
• Encouraging candid conversations, rather than tired rhetoric.
• Replacing misconceptions with genuine understanding and acceptance.
• Igniting dialogues that have been stifled and silenced by political correctness, misunderstandings, inaccurate historical accounts and fear.
