Oral history is all around
StoryCorps facilitators Jason, Nadja, and Elaine decided to take advantage of Atlanta’s nightlife by attending a play called “False Creeds” at the Alliance Theatre. The Alliance website described the play as “a Western, an historical drama, and an exposé of a forgotten and covered up episode in U.S. history. It’s also a deeply personal journey for an African-American young man in search of his roots, and the story of a young girl forced into adulthood by tragedy.” That’s right, we took a break from collecting oral histories of African Americans to go see a play about the oral history of African Americans. Pictured above is the cast of “False Creeds”.
