Celebrate! with Behind the Mask - The Woman Who Outshone the Sun

Mon Oct 14, 2019
10:30am to 11:30am
5+
Free

A poem inspired by a Zapotec folktale comes to life. When a mysterious woman is exiled from a mountain village, she takes the river with her and the villagers must learn the importance of tolerance and forgiveness, and understand their impact on the world around them. 

The Celebrate! series, appropriate for family audiences and children ages 5 and up, highlights America’s rich cultural diversity through the arts. This program is tied directly to President and Mrs. Kennedy's concern for and support of the arts and culture in a democratic society. Thanks to generous support from the Highland Street Foundation, Martin Richard Foundation, and Mass Cultural Council, all performances are free and take place in the Stephen E. Smith Center at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum (Columbia Point, Boston, MA 02125).
