The Old White Lady Tells It chronicles the making and the unmaking of a racist, from the naming of her first puppy at the age of four, through the writing of a college essay that would bring cheers from the KKK, and to ultimately standing in front of a black congregation on a Sunday morning. Told with heart-felt affection, warmth and comic insight, Meyer takes a writer’s surgical precision to growing up in America.
This is an outdoor event, located in the former parking lot of The Cell. There is free parking in the street or the lot across from the venue. Masks are required except when eating/drinking. We will have masks and hand sanitizer available. Children are touchers/spreaders, mature teens and older only, please. Tables will be spaced 18' from each other. Each table will seat a maximum of four, and will be for members of your reservation party only-- husbands/wives/lovers / families/ friends, etc. that have been Covid-ing together. Food & non-alcoholic drinks will be available to pre-order. We ask that you consider a donation to FUSION's annual fund.
