Shontelle Thrash Performs One-Person Show, “The Journey” at Clayton State on Feb. 28

Clayton State University Adjunct Instructor of Theatre Shontelle Thrash will be performing her one-person show, “The Journey” in the Clayton State Theatre (room G132 of the Arts & Sciences Building) at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28. Thrash’s performance is free and open to the public.

“This is an especially theatrical piece for Black History Month,” comments Clayton State Theatre Director Phillip DePoy.

“The Journey,” written by Dorothy Myles, is a play that tells the beginning of a nation of people in a country without a legacy to remember, following four black women through moments in time, beginning in Africa, and going from slavery to the hope of freedom.

“No pictures, no fortunes, no roots that were not tainted by another nation’s seed. Imposed upon in every way; no dawn to follow a new day -- a struggle to know where they belong when freedom rings. Women are said to be the backbone of every family. The black nation is no exception,” states Thrash’s website, www.shontellethrash.com.

A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
