Conversations for Change
Uprooting Prejudice: Conversations For Change at the Holocaust Center examines the indelible link between antisemitism and racism. It begins with the history of white supremacy in the transatlantic slave trade and traces its evolution over time, as it has been used to persecute different groups around the world. The exhibit centers the perspective of Daryl Davis, a Black musician, and ally, who has dedicated his life to fighting white supremacy by the deradicalization of former members of groups such as the Ku Klux Klan. He accomplishes these transformations through the power of respectful conversation, genuine connection, and friendship.
Ragtime cast members and audience members are invited to tour this self-curated exhibition as well as its permanent exhibits which explore themes of immigration, democracy, antisemitism, and highlight local Holocaust Survivors.
About Ragtime Community Programming
CFCArts is pleased to welcome the Florida Theatrical Association as the presenting sponsor for the pre-show programs. FTA’s commitment to educational programs as a crucial component of expanding and supporting new audiences makes for a perfect partnership for the 2022 production of Ragtime.
One of the many questions Ragtime asks audiences to consider is, “What does it mean to achieve the American Dream?” Through the pre-show programs, CFCArts and FTA invite patrons to explore that idea within the context of the themes of antisemitism, racism, immigration, and forced immigration presented in Ragtime.
