JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -

Mega Mind Productions will be presenting “Still I Rise,” a live black history encounter that presents a breath taking travel into a time where equality and freedom were a hopeless reality for people of color.

"Mega Mind Productions recreated the story of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old black Chicagoan whose killing helped galvanize the Civil Rights Movement in 1955.Through this exhibit of live sights, sounds & dramatic reenactments, you will take a journey into the movement of that perilous timeline." said director Jereme Raicket

Attendees will experience the horrifying truths that existed over half a century ago, as if they were there.

'This interactive experience highlights a timeline of the black culture leaving an impactful influence on the community that will not only entertain, but also educate young and old alike on positive influences, equality, unity, faith and most importantly freedom" said Raicket.

"This dramatic, thought provoking, music filled, foot-stomping production is sure to be the highlight of the year as we come together to celebrate the joy, success and liberty of all Americans" said Choregrapher Samuel Hills.
