THEATER ALL YEAR | History Theatre presents "Nellie"

01/26/2013 - 8:00pm - 02/17/2013 - 8:00pm

Civil rights and labor activist Nellie Stone Johnson was a Minnesota hero. Her feisty spirit and drive to succeed made her a political force to be reckoned with on issues of social justice, labor rights, and equality. Renowned playwright Kim Hines tells the remarkable story of a young African-American woman who moved from a farm in northern Minnesota to Minneapolis to attend the U of M. In the face of discrimination at her job Nellie fought back by organizing workers to form a union, breaking numerous race and gender barriers along way.

For more than 30 years History Theatre has produced brave, entertaining explorations of all the histories that make up our diverse community.
