Amid the fervent public outcry over the repeated deaths of unarmed black people The New Black Fest, a New York based Theater organization, commissioned 7 African American playwrights to respond. Representing a wide range of experience, these writers coalesce the personal and political, each examining the long tenuous relationship between African-Americans and law enforcement. Told through a series of monologues and scenes, rendered in a myriad of styles, the voices bring to the fore the physical and psychological impacts of cultural bias and institutional profiling.
“[A] stirring and often raw compilation. – Broad Street Review “These short monologues chronicle each author’s encounters with the daily indecencies of racial profiling, stop-and-frisk, harassment, and casual racism inflicted by police, media, and society in general…each author delivers a brutally honest telling of their own experience.” – Philly.com
Thanks to Keith Joseph Atkins and The New Black Fest
