We’ve Known Rivers is a group of inter active storytellers that celebrate the African American experience in American history by creating dynamic first-person presentations with the feel of a “one person shows”. The stories they tell look at American history through the lens of the power and legacy of the African American community. They bring history to life through their solo dramatic performances of famous African American historical figures.
The organization is that of so-called “teaching artists.” Their goal is to share the timeless stories of country’s history according to the black experience. The characters they portray are often less well known African American historical figures and sometimes are composites of several people. Their well-designed educational performances can cater to all age groups with the intention of empowering the future of our country.
This performance takes place on the 27th of February at the Ohio State House Atrium from 12pm-1pm.
