Introducing, “People of Power”

Introducing, “People of Power”


Today, we’re taking a respite from our regular Shakespeare Snacks episodes. Wait…what is a “respite?”

We want to help fight against ignorance by helping people KNOW MORE!

In our new series, “People of Power,” we’ll be highlighting the accomplishments of amazing people with black or brown skin!

Let us know on Facebook, Instagram, or here on our website if there is a hero with black or brown skin that you want to know more about.

Our videos are released on our Facebook page and YouTube Channel every Tuesday and Thursday at 11am.

Heroes Needed!

What is _Ignorance__ Hmmm...

What is “Ignorance?”


Christina is feeling sad and frustrated.

Shakespeare teaches her what “ignorance” is and what role it plays in people’s behavior towards one another.

We want to recruit YOU to be a hero, and to tell us about some of YOUR favorite real-life heroes! Help combat ignorance by telling us about your favorite heroes of color!
