Civil Rights Legacy Tour: Get on the Bus, Chapter 1
Tacoma Arts Live is pleased to present Get on the Bus, an original all-ages play by Milo Mowery, and produced as part of the Civil Rights Legacy Tour. Present day friends Thalia and James are at odds about whether to join a demonstration for immigrant rights. Along the way, they meet Ms. Vivian, one of the original Freedom Riders who helped desegregate interstate buses in 1961. She challenges the two friends to reflect on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s proclamation that "An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." In this first episode we learn why immigration rights are so important to Thalia.
