Directed by Jon Royal

Produced by Cynthia Harris and Vali Forrister

CAST: Briana Booker, DeYonte Jenkins, Alicia Haymer, Shawn Whitsell, Jack Chambers and Nettie Kraft.

STORY: A searing, poetic riff on race in America, fusing prose, poetry, movement, music, and the visual image. Snapshots, vignettes, on the acts of everyday racism. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams, online, on TV—everywhere, all the time. Those “did-that-really-just-happen-did-they-really-just-say-that” slurs that happen every day and enrage in the moment and later steep poisonously in the mind. And, of course, those larger incidents that become national or international firestorms. As Rankine writes, “This is how you are a citizen.”

“Emotional…always engaging and exceptionally timely…The work, in short, has gotten under my skin, which is a testament to its power.” —LA Times
