The Watsons Go to Birmingham, 1963
February 11 - February 26, 2017
"I ain't never heard of no sickness that makes you kill little girls just because you don't want them in your school. I don't think they're sick at all, I think they just let hate eat them up and turn them into monsters"
Then-year-old Kenny chronicles the events of a fateful summer for the Watson family of Flint, as they pile in the family car and head south - toward a horrific moment in American history. Based on a the Newbery and Coretta Scott King Honor Book by Flint native, Christopher Paul Curtis. Directed by Brittany Reed
