The centerpiece of Power to Inspire 2024, this original multimedia performance, “Courageous Steps: Bridging the Divide for Equality,” by playwright, Nikki Toombs, uses dialogue, music, and dance to address equity in education and the impact of Brown v. Board of Education. The show follows several students as they grapple with the impact of Brown today. Guests will be transported to 1954 where Thurgood Marshall, civil rights lawyer and future Supreme Court Justice, and his team of lawyers prepare to argue Brown before the Court. They also meet a young person preparing to be the first Black student to integrate her school and hear stories about the trials and triumphs of integration.
