MILWAUKEE VOICES OF GUN VIOLENCE: Resolute, Resilient, Revolutionary is a documentary theater play that brings attention to the complex and often unheard or forgotten narratives of gun violence that shapes individuals, families, and communities. Bronzeville Arts Ensemble's Producing Artistic Director Sheri Williams Pannell is the author of this compelling staged reading. Audience members will be invited to participate in a talkback immediately following the reading with a member of the cast, stage director, and representative from the collaborators including Bronzeville Arts Ensemble, Mother's Against Gun Violence and UWM Art, Dance, Film and Theater Departments.
This event is free and open to the public, but we do ask that you register.
