Black History Live: Hasan Davis portrays A.A. Burleigh

When: Tue., Feb. 7, 5:30 & 7:30 p.m. 2012

Hasan Davis doesn't need to pretend he's someone else to draw a crowd. According to his website, Davis rebounded from a tough adolescence — punctuated by not one, but two expulsions from college — to earn his law degree, a Rockefeller Foundation fellowship and a spot on the federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice. But he also re-enacts the even more striking story of Angus Augustus Burleigh, a 19th-century slave turned soldier, educator and minister. Today, as part of Colorado Humanities' Black History Live tour, Davis will perform two local shows for the general public: 1:30 at Pikes Peak Community College's Centennial Campus Theater (5675 S. Academy Blvd.), and 5:30 at Stargazers Theatre (10 S. Parkside Drive). Both are free. — Kirk Woundy
