About the piece:
Mudlark Theater, with writers Kenya Hall and Dru Smith, and its community partners are collaborating on a new play that will follow the lives of students during the desegregation of Evanston public schools, The Foster School Project. Specifically, it will chronicle the loss of Foster School, the district's only all-black school, which was closed in 1976. The loss of this community cornerstone impacted the life of the neighborhood in ways that residents are still grappling with today. In bringing history to life, the play will ask difficult questions about our society today-and whether our nation's public schools are any closer to racial equity now than they were then.
