Reimagining a Maiden Slave Ship Voyage through the Eyes of Middle School Students
July 19, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
DIVERSITY UNITED presents Ahavas Sholom’s (Newark) Composer Artist In Residence, award winning composer and writer, Walter Robinson, talking about the American Slavery school curriculum he created.
New Jersey law requires the teaching of American Slavery via the Amistad Act. Yet, little has been implemented in the Newark School System and throughout the state. Walter will share with us his curriculum, which he plans to bring to the Newark School System in partnership with NJPAC and the City of Newark’s educational outreaches. The curriculum uses performances of Walter’s new original Broadway bound musical entitled Moses In Harlem as the attraction point.
It presents a case study of a real slave ship, Whydah Gally, with artifacts from Whydah Gally’s ship wreck available for students to see and touch in a mini exhibit.
Moses In Harlem was seed funded by Steven Spielberg and the Whydah Gally Museum Collection, from which the mini exhibit is borrowed.
