TNCC Celebrates Black History Month with ‘1001 Inventions’


Published: February 3, 2009

What would life be like without products invented by Africans and African Americans? Find out when Pin Points Theatre brings its production “1001 Inventions” to Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) on Wednesday, Feb. 18 at 7 p.m. in the Dr. Mary T. Christian Auditorium, Templin Hall, Hampton campus.

Open to the public, the free event is sponsored by TNCC Cultural Affairs and is among a slate of activities in the College’s observance of Black History Month.

Combining history, comedy and music, the Washington, D.C.-based company will transport the audience to the “Twilight Zone” with a family that tries to go through life as normal without inventions by Africans and African Americans. Watch the family’s struggle and learn about a myriad of ground-breaking creations and the men and women behind them.

Pin Points Theatre took the production on the road 15 years ago, and 2,500 performances later, the masterfully delivered production still serves as an educational and entertaining experience for audiences of all ages.
