Nationally Known Su Teatro Performs Dancing With the Spirits 
at Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site


Topeka, KS – Su Teatro from Denver, Colorado, will be performing Dancing with the Spriits/Bailando con los Espiritus, a performance on the celebration of life and our ancestors, on Saturday, October 26, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. free of charge at Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site. Su Teatro is nationally known for productions that share the history and experience of Chicanos since 1971 when the group began as a student-organized theater group at the University of Colorado.

Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site has partnered with the Tonantzin Society to celebrate Topeka’s Día de los Muertos Festival. The festival highlights cultural traditions, contributes to the education of diversity, and promotes the Latino arts and culture.

For the celebration, the Western National Parks Association bookstore located at the site is stocked with many items and artwork purchased from the Free Trade Company and made by families from Oaxaca. Brightly colored art made with paper, metal, and wood specific to the Day of the Dead celebration will be available. Many of these items have been discounted in price.

Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site tells the story of the U.S. Supreme Court decision that ended legal segregation in public schools. The site is located at 1515 SE Monroe Street in Topeka, Kansas, and is open free of charge from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Closed federal holidays except for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
