Bloomfield College and the Bloomfield Cultural Commission will take patrons into the sitting room of one of the Civil Rights Movement’s unsung heroines on Mar. 7, as the Westminster Arts Center will host a one-night-only performance of Lee Eric Shackelford’s Too Many Questions: An Evening with Virginia Durr.

"The cultural commission has offered so many important events in recent years, and we are happy that the Westminster Arts Center can play a small part in them,” Arts Center managing director Greg Allen said. “Many people know that Bloomfield College offers an arts hub with our Center, so it makes perfect sense for the organizations to come together with these performing endeavors."

Starring Ginny S. Loggins in the title role, the play highlights the white civil rights activist who played an integral role in the desegregation of Birmingham, Alabama. Originally commissioned by and performed at Vulcan Park and museum in Birmingham, Too Many Questions will take patrons inside the life of a woman who fought for change, set against the tumultuous backdrop of 1955 Montgomery, Alabama.

“As the promoters of the community’s cultural wealth, we are very excited to partner with Bloomfield College for programs like these as they follow our mission completely,” said Michelle Davidson, chair of the Bloomfield Cultural Commission. “We look forward to the added dimension our collaboration will undoubtedly provide”.

The Friday night show will begin at 8 p.m., with free admission on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information on the performance, please visit the Cultural Commission's Facebook page.
