In honor of Black History Month, Sinclair Theatre is touring the play A Song for Coretta by Pearl Cleage to area schools throughout the community.
The story of A Song for Coretta centers five fictional African American women who share their inspirations from Coretta Scott King. The production is made possible through a Sinclair Cultural Diversity Grant.
