Flip Flops & Soap Boxes: Issue Voting in the United States @ McKissick Museum
Jan 14 – Jun 13 all-day

Most people are familiar with the Democratic and Republican Parties in the United States. However, party affiliation is not the only factor people use to decide how to vote. Many voters choose candidates based on specific issues, like abortion or gun control. Historically, some of the biggest issues for voters have been the economy, the Vietnam War, and busing to integrate schools during the Civil Rights movement. Flip Flops & Soap Boxes explores the variety of ways American voters have communicated their opinions on these and other issues in the past

In Cotton High and Low: The History of a Carolina Cash Crop @ McKissick Museum
Jan 14 – May 4 all-day

Cotton has changed significantly from its humble roots as a plant growing wild in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world to its position today as the primary fiber in textiles. It has influenced the history of agriculture, labor, race, and gender, not only in the US South, but around the world. Explore the material culture of cotton through these lenses, beginning with the natural history of the plant itself and progressing to the social effects of its cultivation in the US South.

*Winner 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Drama*

One of the most powerful shows of 2018 comes to the Trustus Side Door theatre. Eddie, an unemployed truck driver, reunites with his ex-wife Ani after she suffers a devastating accident. John, a brilliant and witty doctoral student, hires overworked Jess as a caregiver. As their lives intersect, Majok’s play delves into the chasm between abundance and need and explores the space where bodies—with or without disability—meet each other.
