The event

Ever just wanted to break free? Join us onsite at the Lewis Museum to experience stories of liberation for the premier Short Kuts Live Storytelling Show. In honor of Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, we celebrate the date when Major General Granger and Union troops reached Galveston, Texas, with news that the civil war had ended; it represents the end of slavery for all in the United States of America.

Our Liberation: “Stories of Freedom and Emancipation” – The show explores the themes of liberation, ranging from the joys of freedom to the perils people faced in the aftermath, whether they were refugees, survivors of domestic violence, discrimination, assault, or in a strange land or felt like strangers in their own country.

Liberation Theme Song: Redemption Songs by Bob Marley

Featured Storyteller:

Dr. Karsonya Wise Whitehead

Produced by Dr. LaMarr Darnell Shields and directed by Marc LaVeau.

FAMILY:   As the pandemic persists, The Short Kuts Show Narrative Therapy Initiative ~&~ Live Storytelling Experience is also persisting in its efforts in creating individual and village uplift with storytelling coupled with therapeutic practices--“narrative therapy” (or “thairapy”, as The Short Kuts Show is a storytelling project inspired by/paying homage to the hair-chair therapists of the Black American barber/beauty shop--its barbers and stylists), as we call it--positively impacting the community.
