Voices of the Eighth Chronicles II: Stories from Harrisburg’s old Eighth Ward is an original collage of storytelling by Sharia Benn that fuses imagery, movement, sound, and music to uplift the work of chain-breakers and change-makers from Harrisburg’s demolished Eighth Ward. This original work pays homage to the resilient spirit of the nineteenth and twentieth-century African American liberators, educators, orators, and writers who fought to build a community of freedom and belonging.  Meet these vibrant personalities as seen through the eyes of the Sankofa bird who reminds us that to ensure a strong future, we must first understand the past.

Voices of the Eighth Chronicles II is a Winter Partnership Production of  Sankofa African American Theatre Company and Gamut Theatre.
