Drama

Blood at the Root

September 27 - October 13, 2019

Gaddy-Goodwin Teaching Theatre (General Admission)


Based on the true story of the Jena Six; six Black students who were initially charged with attempted murder for a school fight after being provoked with nooses hanging from a tree on campus. This bold ensemble drama examines the miscarriage of justice, racial double standards, the crisis in relations between men and women of all classes and, as a result, the shattering state of Black family life.

By Dominique Morisseau

Directed by Lomerav Jones
