Blood at the Root
by University of Texas Theatre & Dance

Feb. 23 - Feb. 25

An ensemble-driven drama based on the Jena Six (2006); six Black students who were originally charged with attempted murder for a school fight after being provoked with nooses hanging from a tree on campus. This play examines the miscarriage of justice, racial double standards and the crisis in relations between men and women of all classes and, as a result, the shattering state of the Black family. 

Directed by: Mikala Gibson
