This reading is part of a series to highlight the urgent push for racial equality and social justice that is at the heart of the current anti-racist movement. This artistic response to current events brings to life contemporary plays that address the issues of injustice, police brutality and systemic racism against people of color. Each play in this series will be followed by a talkback with the creative team and guest speakers.
