The African-American Experience: A Walk Through Time is an original musical production written by Alan R.H. Nettles. Nettles wrote the production when he was 13 years old, and it includes over 25 prominent black figures like Lucille Clifton, Langston Hughes, Fannie Lou Hamer, W.E.B. DuBois, Diana Ross, and more. Recently, he completed a revival of the show in collaboration with Community Academy of the Arts & Tennessee State University. The 1 night only event was met with a thunderous applause from the black community in Nashville, TN. The major consensus has been that a play such as this needs to tour the country. Children do not learn enough about Black American history in schools. The information isn't easily available. How can we expect our community to move forward without knowing from whence we came? It should be made accessible to communities all over the world. 

As stated in an interview with Cillea Houghton of Tennessee Tribune, "you see the stories of these historical characters evolve. We see their humanness. You see the progression in the African-American community and in the American community through this play from the beginning to the end of the show."
