Nonfiction Tuesday - Black Lives Matter

Celebrate Black History Month by journeying into the minds of the young African-American men and women who fought for equality during the civil rights movement. Though the social movement began in the late 1950s and continued through the 1960s, the issue remains every bit as relevant today as racial bias continues to permeate American life. In Black Lives Matter, playwright Steven A. Butler Jr. strips away the caricatures and stereotypes to reveal the complicated and fiercely beautiful truth underneath -- the joys, pains, struggle and heartbreak that define those who strove to reconcile humankind. Courtney Baker-Oliver directs this timely and important theatrical piece for Restoration Stage.-Amazon
