FACING OUR TRUTH

GET TICKETS

In February 2012, Trayvon Martin, an African American teenager, was killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch leader, in the suburb of Sanford, Florida.  Zimmerman was later acquitted of all charges.  The New Black Fest, a theater company in New York, responded to this by hiring eight diverse artists to respond to the themes of race and privilege in America.  What resulted are six gorgeous ten minute plays, some hilarious and some sorrowful.  With the wide range of perspective they bring, the plays incite serious discussion in our collective communities around these urgent issues.  Here at Sonoma State we are presenting Facing Our Truth as staged readings.

Facing Our Truth is NOT associated with the Trayvon Martin Foundation
