The Reading Education Foundation (REF) and the Coolidge, Parker, and RMHS PTO proudly present Actor-Psychologist-Poet, Dr. Michael Fowlin on Thursday, April 3rd, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the William E. Endslow Performing Arts Center. There is no cost to attend this unique event.
Dr. Fowlin will be presenting his unique show, “You Don’t Know Me until You Know Me, A Dance with Diversity”. In this gripping, fast paced, 75-minute performance, “Mykee” slips in and out of characters, both male and female, who “share their stories.” These stories are shared in an often humorous, but at times heartbreaking, manner.
According to Marlene Lifshin, School Adjustment Counselor at Coolidge Middle School, “Dr. Folwin visited Reading almost four years ago and students still remember him.” His dynamic one-person show deals with the issues of race, discrimination, violence prevention, personal identity, suicide, gender equity, homophobia, and the emotional challenges of special education youth.
According to Fowlin, “his programs combine both his professional acting talents and his psychological training. His mission is to create an atmosphere of worldwide inclusion, not just tolerance, towards all people. He has worked extensively with all age groups in the United States and in other countries. His work has included peer mediation, diversity trainings, gender equity workshops, and violence prevention seminars”
