Kesa Dunn and Barbara Edwards at the Main Street Theater
in Roanoke, Alabama
Deputy Director Barbara Edwards visits Roanoke to talk with Kesa Johnston Dunn, who led the efforts to transform the site of a burned-out movie theater into an open air performance space with the help a Cultural Facilities grant from ASCA.
Ms. Dunn explains the theater’s importance to several generations of community members who recall it as a gathering place as well as a movie house. Ms. Dunn and other members of the Roanoke Rotary Club took on the project so that the site of the old theater will once again be a gathering place for people in Roanoke to enjoy the arts.
