CARRY IT FORWARD stars activist legend Angela Davis as the program's narrator, Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues and Emotional Creature) portraying Ethel Rosenberg, and Cotter Smith as Julius Rosenberg.

The program (written by Ellen Meeropol, author of House Arrest, and directed by Sheryl Stoodley), intersperses dramatic readings and dramatized vignettes with music and poetry; honors the legacy of ­resistance passed on from the Rosenbergs and others; and celebrates the courage of families who continue to resist today.
