“Anne Frank and Emmett Till meet in Memory to inspire change today”

Through an imaginary conversation between two iconic figures of civil rights history, Anne & Emmett examines the innocence of children thrust into the most horrific of circumstances. This play is a history lesson about the importance of tolerance, compassion, and justice, to be acted on in life. Though worlds away from each other, both Anne Frank and Emmett Till were just 14 years old when they fell victim to hate and intolerance. Together both Anne and Emmett speak as teenagers do. Although isolated from the violence of their lives in the place called Memory, both discuss the injustices they faced and the actions that lead to their horrible ends recognizing the similarities between them.
