From the press release: “After achieving the American Dream of a college education, a family and a house with a white picket fence, Ellington is all but hopeless. Sick and tired of watching Black people die at the hands of the police, he organizes a re-segregation movement to take one thousand Black people to a remote place where they can live in peace. What Ellington cannot predict is that the biggest challenge isn’t others trying to stop them; it’s figuring out how to do it together.”
AIN’T NO SUCH THING AS A MIDNIGHT BLACK runs May 25th – June 9th. For more information visit kcmeltingpot.com.
