January 19 – February 7
The Hampton Years explores the empowering nature of art through the journey of two students and their professors. Set at Hampton Institute (now Hampton University) in the 1940s, the production examines society’s expectations surrounding African American artists. Based on the true story of students, John Biggers and Samella Sanders, it follows their struggle to find their unique voices. This original work will receive its second production at the historic Wells Theatre just down the road from Hampton University where these heroic students made history.
