Jackie Robinson: A Game Apart (A One-Man Show)
By Mike Wiley
Directed by Mike Wiley
August 6 (Wed, 8:00-9:00pm)
Acclaimed for his moving and enlightening original performances, Mike brings to life penetrating lessons of courage and leadership from heroic African-American athletes who pushed the color barrier to its breaking point. Learn what life was like in an era of separate, unequal locker rooms, whites-only hotels, and res¬taurants with only a back door for Colored Athletes to enter. You’ll meet role models of the outfield, the backcourt, the track, the ring, the blacktop, with all the mud, the blood, the sweat, and the tears. Allow this play to intrigue you, educate you, and inspire you. Free event thanks to the generosity of Shake Rag supporters and a grant for the Wisconsin Humanities Council. Call to reserve your seat.
