As an aim to preserve, and make accessible, the memory of Watts in the context of historical narratives, the WVTC explores the 1965-Watts Riot/Rebellion.  This highly recommended 90-minute play demonstrates how performance art, as method for oral history, serves as a way to understand and heal from the remnants of a difficult history in the present. Based on interviews from the 1965 survivors, this play offers an array of artistic efforts (acting, singing, dancing, poetry, and personal narrative accounts) to expose the changing community of Watts, challenge the dominant narrative of both the riots and Watts as a place, and build on community resilience, survival, and history.

Unfortunately, it is not getting a lot of coverage and there is a need to expose this play to begin to challenge the dominant narratives of Watts. You’re invited to come to Watts and learn more about its history … please join us!
