Martha's Vineyard NAACP Annual Freedom Fund Souvenir Journal, 1988

About the Project

Martha’s Vineyard is known for its leisure activities and summers. From the 1940s to the 1980s, the Shearer Summer Theater, an African American theater company, produced shows for locals and tourists alike. The Shearer Summer Theater was the brainchild of Elizabeth “Liz” White, a dresser on Broadway, who directed, and even bought a two story house to act as the stage in the 1950s for the plays. Help us transcribe this program for a screening of Liz White’s production of Othello.
