Mountain Home Hosts Living Voices: The Right to Dream
The Mountain Home Arts Council is proud to present Living Voices: The Right to Dream on Thursday, February 22, at Mountain Home High School’s Lloyd Schiller Gym, 300 South 11th East Street, Mountain Home, ID. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the program begins at 7 pm. The Living Voices: The Right to Dream illuminates the struggle and sacrifice for civil rights in America by combining a dynamic solo performance with archival film and sound, turning history into a moving and personal journey. At the center of the performance is one student’s coming of age as an African American in Mississippi during the 1950’s and 1960’s, leading audiences to understand how the fight against prejudice has shaped our history. Tickets are $10.00 for adults, $8.00 Seniors/Military and $5.00 for Students, available in advance at Lucky Perk or at the door.
The Mountain Home Arts Council will also host Living Voices: The Right to Dream for several educational outreach programs earlier in the day for students at Mountain Home High School and Bennett Mountain High School.
Living Voices: The Right to Dream’s community performance and educational outreach programs are made possible by the Mountain Home Arts Council and are supported in part by grants from the Idaho Humanities Council, a state-based program of the National Endowment for the Humanities, Idaho Commission on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, The Whittenberger Foundation, The Laura Moore Cunningham Foundation, the Mountain Home Air Force Base Officers’ Spouses’ Club, Pioneer Federal Credit Union, and US Bank Foundation, as well as the generous support of the City of Mountain Home, Hampton Inn/Johnson Brothers Hospitality, Mountain Home News, El-Wyhee Hi-Lites, and other local business and individual patrons.
