Unrelenting Voices Read-In
A Celebration of Freedom, Justice, Mandela and More


On Thursday January 8, 2015 the McCarter Theatre Center for Education held a “read –in” event.  Approximately 50 people gathered at the newly renovated Trenton Free Public Library for this event.  The group was a cross section of Trentonians past & present, students and “seasoned” individuals with multiple languages and ethnic backgrounds represented.
The mission statement for the 80 plus year old Princeton, NJ Theater Company states “McCarter’s education and engagement programs are designed to facilitate discovery, develop agency, and build community.”
The multi-cultural/multi generational readers passionately read the pre-chosen pieces.  The Free Trenton Library provided a wonderful space for the event.  The upgrades to the facility are well appointed and well crafted.

I am thankful to have been chosen as a reader of passages by Desmond Tutu and Cornell West.  During the closing comments I shared the emotions I felt from reading and hearing others read the numerous passages and left with this statement, “Well done to all involved, I hope, pray, expect and encourage US to act on the hearings from this event.
