The Alliance Theater in Atlanta Georgia asked me to create an interactive micro site for tweens and teens to accompany the animated short "Sit In" written by Atlanta's bestselling author, playwright, and Civil Rights Activist, Pearl Cleage. Using artwork from the short, we created an interactive experience for the user to watch the video, listen to music from the short, and download additional materials that reinforce the important and prescient message behind the story. This original animated short celebrates the power of youth to change history. We meet three friends as they learn about the sit-ins of the Civil Rights era, and powerfully apply those lessons to issues they – and we all – face today.
