Change Gon' Come

Change Gon


The Civil Rights Movement was a dangerous time for those trying to make a change. Change Gon' Come presents the Civil Rights movement through narration, song, and the unique perspective of two married couples: one black and one white. This thought-provoking interpretive presentation is the third in Black History Alive's Front Porch Talk Series. A Portsmouth front porch meant laughter. It meant tears. It meant stories. IT STILL DOES!

In many ways, the front porch replaced the fires of old, where folks recounted the events of the day, as well as the events of yesterdays. Before Facebook or photographs or even books, oral storytelling is how humanity shared and passed on its history. Laugh with us! Cry with us! Hear stories of our shared American History as it impacted African Americans in Portsmouth, the region, the state of Virginia, and our nation.
