On Sunday, February 10, 2013, the Sierra Madre Playhouse will celebrate "Black History Month" with the first of several special events we have planned for the run of our well received and critically acclaimed production of “Driving Miss Daisy”. Former Los Angeles City Council member Robert Farrell, a Mississippi native and Freedom Rider during the Civil Rights Era, will reflect on that important period in our history.
Following his appearance, recording artist, Maiya Sykes and friends will perform several of the anthems of the Civil Rights Era.
“Driving Miss Daisy” is the Pulitzer-winning play by *Alfred Uhry* about the developing friendship between an elderly Jewish woman in Atlanta and her African American chauffeur. Set in the years 1948 through 1973, the issues of civil rights and race are always part of the story’s background.
