Walk the Walk

2021 Walk the Walk video now live!

At the “Walk the Walk” school performance, your students will meet actors portraying Rochester’s African-American ancestors. Students will experience an onstage performance, as each Ancestor shares their story. Interactive activities keep students engaged during the performance. Pre/post visit materials prepare students and reinforce content.

Over the last 20 years, Walk the Walk: Encounters with Rochester’s African-American Ancestors has been performed for thousands of students, families and citizens. We’re excited to announce that for 2021, we are producing a film version that will be available on our website and free to all!

If you are an educator, contact Cindy Boyer for pre and post program activities.
