Description

Join Memphis Urban League Young Professionals for a night of entertainment that won't disappoint!

It is 1985. Ronald Reagan is in the White House and the nation is in the midst of an economic expansion. You'd never know it in Pittsburgh's Hill District. Here, as in many of America's inner cities, life is hard. Unemployment is on the rise; drugs, gangs and violence fill the streets. This is the world of King Hedley II. At 36 years old, this ex-convict is at war with his past, his present and the uncertain future. He is scarred, grieving, raging and determined to find dignity and bring something good and new out of his aching world. He plants seeds in the dirt of his tenement backyard, feeds his dream of owning his own business by any means necessary, and fights for the life of his unborn child. King is a man reaching for success, colliding with the limitations of the world around him and those within himself.
