The American Slavery Project is a theatrical response to increasing revisionism in our nation's discourse about slavery, the Civil War and Jim Crow. ASP supports African-American playwrights who write about the era, creates conversation in the community and provides educational workshops for students and adults. "Unheard Voices" is American Slavery Project’s first original piece, a collectively written site-specific and theatrical performance created for the African Burial Ground in Lower Manhattan.
