Join NYCCT Teaching Artist, Caitlyn, for a digital, interactive & accessible storytime class that mixes books you love with theater games your little one will love – without having to leave home! This month we are celebrating Black History! We will explore stories of black folks who have made an impact on history, music, science, and literature. We will celebrate their contributions and investigate the injustices they faced.
Born blind into a life of slavery, Thomas Wiggins was dismissed as a “useless burden” But through the loving protection of his family, he went on to become one of the greatest musicians of his time. From Tom’s childhood on a plantation to his performances in the concert halls of Europe, Glenda Armand shares the beautiful and at times heartbreaking story of a long-overlooked musical great, the love that supported him, and the struggle for freedom.
Classes run for 45 minutes live on Zoom!
