Celebrate MLK Day with Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit as they share the touching story of Four Little Girls: Birmingham 1963 by Christina Ham
This play centers on Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, Cynthia Wesley and Addie Mae Collins, four little girls who are multi-talented and bursting with promise and who share their hopes and dreams against the backdrop of the civil rights movement.
While Denise dreams of becoming a doctor, Carole looks forward to the dress she will one day wear at the cotillion, Cynthia imagines her life as a mathematics professor at the local university and Addie Mae envisions a life as a professional baseball player.
The realities of the segregated political climate that will put a stop to these dreams swirl around them and eventually culminate in the fateful events of September 15, 1963.
