Howard Conn Fine Arts Center
1900 Nicollet Avenue Minneapolis
The Youth Performance Company delves into the civil-rights and student-activism movement of the '60s with the play Periphery. It's 1960 in North Carolina, and everyone knows that only white people can eat at lunch counters. But four young African-Americans change what "everybody knows" by taking the radical move of sitting at a lunch counter and asking for a cup of coffee. What happened next changed history. Recommended for 4th-graders and above, Periphery comes to the Howard Conn Fine Arts Center in Minneapolis.
