Northside Carnation is based on the life of Mildred Brown, matriarch of Omaha’s north side and founder of the Omaha Star newspaper, a channel of communication for Omaha’s African American community. The play journeys across four decades of Omaha history and explores the struggles and triumphs of a leader and a community in a time of great change, asking the question, "Where do we need to go from here?" The play will be performed alongside a gallery installation of the same theme.
