2022 will mark 10 years since Trayvon Martin was murdered and the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter was created. The notion that Black Lives Matter has been stated simply and shouted loudly down through the years, decades, centuries. The enslaved African people, the abolitionists, the anti-segregation, anti-lynching, pro-civil rights, Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), Black Power, Black Arts Movement, freedom fighters were all, in their way, calling out that Black Lives Matter. The Department of Theatre and Dance wants to provide our audience of students, faculty, staff, and community members with a thoughtful, insightful, factually accurate, and emotionally compelling, rendering of American history that places the BLM movement of the past 10 years in its full context in a powerful live documentary drama.
