We Shall Not Be Moved: The Student Sit-Ins of 1960 presented by The Coterie Theatre at The Coterie Theatre, Kansas City MO

The Coterie brings to life on stage one of the defining moments of the civil rights movement.

Their non-violent demonstration in Greensboro gained such momentum that it quickly inspired a new generation to stand up for their Civil Rights. This is the story of ordinary citizens who witnessed a movement forming right before their eyes.

After each performance of We Shall Not Be Moved, audiences will remain in
