On Sunday, February 10, 2013, during *Black History Month*, the Sunday
matinee performance of *“Driving Miss Daisy”* will be followed by a talk
and Q & A with former Los Angeles City Council member *Robert Farrell*. A
Mississippi native and Freedom Rider during the Civil Rights Era, he will
reflect on that important period in our history. Following his appearance,
vocalist and recording artist *Maiya Sykes* will perform some 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.
