The Dillard University Theatre Department is proud to present Karen Evens' "Homegirls" as part of its 75th Anniversary Season. "Homegirls," set in the midst of the civil rights movement, tells the story of five college women, four black and one white, who strive to maintain their friendships and find their way to adulthood. Ray Vrazel will direct.

The characters in the play are an amalgamation of founders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee or SNCC (pronounced snick), the student-led organization most famous for the lunch counter sit-ins of the early 1960s. SNCC protested the injustices of segregation in America through nonviolent resistance, Freedom Rides, marches, and voter registration drives, and by 1963, SNCC was a key player in organizing the monumental March on Washington.

The show will run in the Cook Theatre on February 11, 12, 18, and 19 at 8 p.m., and February 13 and 20 at 3 p.m. There will also be school matinees on Ferbrary 9, 10, 16 and 17. For tickets, call the box office at (504) 816-4857.
