Power and Grace Ministries and Power and Grace Preparatory Academy (PGPA) recently presented a performance of Dr. Gregory P. Stallworth’s original theatrical production B.L.A.C.K. at the Kenwood High School Auditorium.
B.L.A.C.K. is an acronym for Born Lost in Adversity yet Centered on Knowledge.
The production began with a song performed by a choir of young PGPA students. Through the course of three acts local leaders took the stage to portray and share the wisdom of many of America’s greatest historical figures.
Dr. Stallworth spoke as Carter G. Woodson, a graduate of Harvard, historian, author and journalist who is often cited as the father of black history. Others came forward to represent W.E.B. Dubois, Nat Turner, Frederick Douglass, Maya Angelou, and many more.
The presentation concluded with an appearance by Kevin Toon and Makeba Webb portraying Barack & Michelle Obama. In all, more than a dozen inspirational leaders from 200 years of American history were brought to life on the stage.
