Compliment: In One Era

To Whom It May Concern:

It was the pleasure of the Alta Walk Community to enjoy; learn and relearn our United States History.

As a Science major and a teacher of it for 34 years; my major Interest was about scientific achievements (of course some Scientific History was always involved).

Our U.S. History is so interesting and each of the 48 states and 2 territories has its abundance of history.  This special Program [ IN ONE ERA AND OUT THE OTHER] made it colorful; all facts in concise manner.  I was not bored because music accompanied each decade, accordingly.

The decade singing put me on a high.  It’s a must for our students both High School and College.

Mike Wiley: actor, playwright, filmmaker, educator and, now, beginning banjo player It sneaks up on you, the first time you see a solo stage work by documentary theater playwright and actor Mike Wiley. You're struck as he vividly impersonates a witness to an event from the history of race in our country, like the Montgomery bus boycott, Jackie Robinson's integration of major league baseball or the trial of the men who murdered Emmett Till.
After that character has his say, someone from another walk of life takes center stage and contributes his testimony. Then a third, of a different gender, race and social or economic class, brings up a crucial fact not considered up to then. A fourth dismisses it, but a fifth re…
