Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture presents What Makes A Citizen?
Have you ever read the Constitution? Do you know what truly makes a citizen? These are the questions that will be asked and answered at the inaugural What Makes a Citizen? Art and civics will collide to illustrate the 14th amendment to the Constitution and the foundations of Citizenship in the United States.
Professor Jeffrey Rosen, President and CEO of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, will explore the 14th Amendment. His presentation will be interwoven with powerful performances under the direction of the contemporary playwright, poet, director, and Professor Will Power, formerly of SMU, and currently at Spelman College in Atlanta.
Performances will include the youth of Dallas’ Cry Havoc Theater Company, SMU alumni Janielle Kastner and Brigham Mosely, and a video installation by Kate Ducey. Brooklyn’s DJ Reborn, the creator of What Makes a Citizen?’s musical score, returns to Dallas a decade after her memorable appearance at the official opening of the AT&T Center for the Performing Arts.
