TSU presents the Miller premiere of Professor Thomas Meloncon’s Where Were You In ’65?, a musical drama that takes a young man, unaware of his history, on a nostalgic and magical journey to the year 1965—where a loaf of bread was 20 cents; gasoline was 31 cents a gallon; the cost of a new 65 Mustang Coupe was about 3400 bucks; the backseats on buses was reserved for Negroes; and the music was clean, innocent, and inspirational. 

African Americans were experiencing the second cultural offspring of the Harlem Renaissance, where Black became beautiful, afro’s replaced conks, and Smokey Robinson could have easily run for President of the United States.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.

Presented by Miller Outdoor Theatre
Produced by College of Liberal Arts and Behavioral Science, Texas Southern University
