We have lots of exciting programs, workshops, activities, and events planned at The Dewitt Center through June 2019 and we want you to join us to #DoItAtTheDewitt!


One Drop of Love at Hibernian Hall

One Drop of Love; One-woman performance by Fanshen Cox. One Drop uses the ever-changing racial categories on the U.S. Census as the historical backdrop to this interactive show. Throughout, the audience is asked to participate in defining and redefining these categories for themselves and one another. Fanshen parallels this history with her own, and her family’s, search for roots, identity and for justice. Audiences will travel from the 1700s to the present, to cities around the U.S., and to West and East Africa, to pursue more truth – leading to more justice – and then, perhaps to LOVE.
