Pearl Cleage's Something Moving: A Meditation on Maynard

Hertz Stage
Pearl Cleage's Something Moving: A Meditation on Maynard
Aug 2 - Aug 11
Hertz Stage
By Pearl Cleage
Directed by David Kote

Award-winning author and playwright Pearl Cleage explores the election of Maynard Jackson, Atlanta's first African American mayor, from the vantage point of an artist and an insider - Cleage served as Jackson's press secretary during his campaign and followed him into City Hall for two years as Director of Communications. In choosing to tell the story of this 1973 landmark election, Cleage creates a cast of characters drawn from her own participation in this transformative moment in our city's history. By looking back, Cleage invites us to reflect on the meaning of leadership and the kind of future we want to build.
