The Forgotten Founding Fathers is a theatrical, hip-hop dance odyssey that explores American history through the lens of African American heroes during some of the country's most pivotal times, including the American Revolution, Civil War and Reconstruction.

This captivating show spotlights heroes such as Prince Whipple, Wentworth Cheswell, Colonel Tye, Sojourner Truth and Phillis Wheatley. Unlike other historical education that highlights the pain and suffering of African Americans, The Forgotten Founding Fathers aims to teach the contributions of African Americans to the country.

A ticket is required for every person attending the show, regardless of age.
