This continuing education treat will begin with a performance of selected scenes from “THE W.I.T.C.H” by playwright and actress Morgan Breon.
“THE W.I.T.C.H.” shows the joys, pains, and struggles of Ms. Morgan, a newly hired Behavior Specialist at a Detroit public high school. When hope begins to crack open her students’ hearts and minds, Ms. Morgan’s office might just be the most dangerous room in the entire school. Featuring Morgan Breon in a tour de force role as she portrays an array of characters in the public school setting including a behavior specialist, students, teachers and administrators. THE W.I.T.C.H. stands for Wound Intervention Through Care and Healing.
Participants will identify ways in which the themes of: generational trauma, secondary trauma, historical racism, ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences), repressed and suppressed trauma and the possibilities of misdiagnoses among black youth come across through performance. Please note, the performance of THE W.I.T.C.H., which depicts the discourse of high school students, contains language that some may find offensive
