Details: In 1961 a group of students at Howard University, looking to raise issues, spark discussion, and open minds, orchestrated a debate between two of the most powerful and influential voices on civil and human rights at the time, Bayard Rustin and Malcolm X. Informed by firsthand accounts of people who were there, Project Awareness tackles issues at the forefront of debate in America 50 years ago, which also seem ripped from today’s headlines. Exploring the intersection of race, political philosophy, and religion, this drama probes democracy, activism, and faith in America.

Project Awareness is presented in partnership with the Smithsonian Discovery Theater and the March on Washington Film Festival.

Cost: Open to public – Free tickets available here.
