civil rights that is being produced by Bowie State University (BSU) in
Maryland. The first reading of the play was held at The Kennedy Center on

We extend our thanks to all of our grassroots activists and supporters for
your help with making our educational campaign so successful over the past
five years. We greatly appreciate your continued hard work as we move forth
with our mission of enlightening our fellow citizens about the rich civil
rights legacy and principles of the Republican Party so that we can return
African Americans to their Republican Party roots.
