Last January, Maya Gillingham, Jody Lester, and John Burt embarked on an eight-week tour that gave some 3,600 students across the country an opportunity to share their feelings about growing up in a nuclear age. The three are members of Changing the Silence, a group affiliated with the Student Teacher Organization to Prevent Nuclear War (STOP).
Maya and Jody, teenage students from Massachusetts, along with John, an independent arts producer, took their program of drama, dance, and song to young people in nine U.S. cities. Included in the program was a videotape of Massachusetts high school students performing a dramatic piece of their own creation. The intention of the tour — which developed from a "mere summer thought indulged in by a few people" — was to communicate hope to a nuclear-anxious generation and to inspire people to work toward peace.
