Culver-Stockton’s chapter of Phi Beta Sigma, a historically black fraternity and member of the “Divine 9,” is hosting a performance of “The Messengers” by Sir Ervin Williams III. “The Messengers” is a compelling interpretation of the evolution of the African-American experience, told in the form of monologues, music and poetry. A question and answer session is planned for after the performance.

Williams is a performing artist, born in St. Louis and currently living in Worcester, Mass. He has appeared in several films and has an extensive background in the theatre. He is also in the process of publishing his first book, which covers the many obstacles Williams had to overcome by being raised in inner city St. Louis.

“The Messengers” is written and performed by Williams. The story begins with Taharqa, an Egyptian pharaoh. Taharqa is awakened one night by a premonition of what is in store for his great land. When he realizes the inevitable, he immediately forges a plan to cast a spell to send messengers to the future. These messengers are charged with the task of warming other Africans of what the future holds for their civilization. The messengers appear in the form of Nat Turner, Booker T. Washington and Martin Luther King Jr., among others. The goal is to teach the resilience of the African-American spirit throughout history.
