Malcolm X Elementary School 2nd graders performed five short plays on “Women Who’ve Changed the World” telling the stories of Dolores Huerta, Amelia Bloomer, Wilma Rudolph, Helen Keller, and Wangari Maathai. Their amazing script was based on stories taken from books about these courageous women, and transformed into theater by Malcolm X’s own drama teacher, Mariah Castle. The 5th grade Drama Club filled in as stage crew, and helped to insure a seamless production. The students were well prepared for their roles and articulately executed their lines in two assemblies and an evening performance for the parents.
