About the event

Reluctant to cope with one more tragedy in a school—raise your hand if you feel me!—young activist, Ya Girl, is ready to call it quits on leading her million-plus Instagram followers in the fight for social justice. When Melba Pattillo Beals steps out of history and into Ya Girl’s phone to share the story of her battle to integrate Little Rock Central High School in 1957, Ya Girl learns to see herself in Melba—and in all the young warriors who came before her to raise their hands and make a difference. Warriors Don’t Cry features original music, spoken word, and video projection. Free UD student admission made possible by the UD Wendt Center for Character Education. twusa.org
