The FUS MOSES Ministry Team brings us our First Friday Film/Discussion in the form of a unique play: Lines in the Dust by playwright, award-winning actress, and dramatist Nikkole Salter.
Ms. Salter will be joining us for this discussion!
This version of the play will be performed via Zoom by New Normal Rep in NYC.
The story centers on a mother fighting for the best education for her daughter after losing a charter school lottery.
“This play is about belonging. Who belongs where, and who has access? I was inspired by the intersection between the institution of education, the role that it plays in the American Dream, segregation, housing, and economic mobility. All of these issues are a part of the American conversation, yet have not made it to the forefront of our storytelling. We all need to challenge ourselves and recognize our own roles in these long-standing dynamics,” Salter said in a statement. “What would it look like to invest in every child as if every child could be the steward of your future?”
