We are excited to produce a staged reading of Terri Lyon’s new play When The Truth Comes Out, a play about the silent architects of the Civil Rights movement.  Join us as we witness a fictional encounter between nine important leaders: Daisy Bates, Jo Ann Robinson, Pauli Murray, Ella Baker, Fannie Lou Hamer, Barbara Jordan, Shirley Chisholm, Patricia Harris, and Constance Baker Motley.

I am filled with gratitude for the many amazing collaborations with artists, audiences, and supporters I have enjoyed for the past 10 years. The impact of Beacon’s work was realized in diverse communities through the input and creativity of many committed individuals and partnering organizations.
