CAU TAKES IN NYC AND BROADWAY STAGEPLAY, “AMERICAN SON”

No comments

Students and Faculty of Clark Atlanta University accepted the invitation extended by CAU’s 1978 alumnus Kenny Leon to attend a preview of the broadway show, “American Son.” Performed under Leon’s direction, the cast included Kerry Washington, Steven Pasquale, Jeremy Jordan and Eugene Lee. 

Students were also provided with a city tour, which the Apollo Theatre, Julliard School, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Time Square, Ground Zero museum and the World Trade Center Memorial.  For many students, it was their first visit to New York, but one that provided them with an historical perspective of Harlem and people of color on Broadway.
