Through the use of entertainment Dr. Joe P. Cornelius has found a unique way of communicating
the fascinating history of the African-American's experience.
He has written a one man dramatization of the history of African
Americans through the use of "Hats". This performance has been enjoyed by
thousands by way of his live appearance on the nationally syndicated show, Tony Brown's Journal.
"Hats" is by far one of the more popular history lessons about
the black experience. Other skits include
"Alexander" and "The Devil and Leroy Jones."
Alexander was inspired by a student who used the excuse of being "Black" as a way not to strive for excellence in school and used the same excuse throughout life. As Dr. Cornelius portrays the life of Alexander we are all given a reminder that excellency is within us all.
The Devil and Leroy Jones is a story of a young man who, as he matures
into manhood combats the devil in a positive way with witty
dialogue. Little Leroy ultimately overcomes stigmas placed upon him
by the devil and emerges victoriously.
Enjoy the experience of "Hats", "The Devil and Leroy
Jones" and "Alexander" which have strong messages of hope,
inspiration, black history and the power of a good education!
