Have you ever been told that you’re not enough? That you’re not strong enough, tall enough, fast enough? Bessie was told she was not enough. Bessie dreams of riding her bike with the boys after school, but they tell her she is not fast enough. When she finally gets a chance to race, she proves not only that she is fast enough, but she is faster. Explore the power of curiosity and commitment with Miss Caitlyn in this special speedy class!

Wednesday, February 9th at 4pm
Classes run for 45 minutes live on Zoom!


Each year our Black History month series shares the stories of influential black folks throughout American history. As we explore their stories, we also explore the contexts that their stories take place in. Through theater, themes around race, racism, discrimination, perseverance, self-advocacy, and creativity are explored. This year, we begin in the 1930s and travel all the way to 2021, ending with a new book by future Black History influencer Amanda Gorman.
