STRANGE FRUIT: Play reading of anti-lynching dramas from the early 1900s

  • Jack 505 Waverly Ave Brooklyn, NY, 11238 United States (map)

In the early 1900s, many Black playwrights wrote works about lynching -- usually family-centered dramas focused on the tensions leading up to a lynching, or the effect on the family after a lynching.  Given the renewed, legalized violence on black and brown bodies, JACK, in collaboration with Colloquy Collective, will present readings of five of these plays throughout the spring, with professional actors.  Each reading will be followed by a discussion.  In the age of #BlackLivesMatter, how do these stories still resonate with you?
