SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Sixty years ago, students from Booker T. Washington were intimidated, stopped in their tracks and beaten as they marched for equality.

A stage play will take place Thursday, Sept. 21 that is dedicated to the fateful day. “Shreveport Rising: We’ve Come This Far by Faith” will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the school auditorium. Admission will be $20.

Director Vincent Williams, event chairperson Sharon Johnson and Monica Blake Mickle visited the KSLA Café on Tuesday, Sept. 19 to discuss the play.
