Genesis Festival of New Plays – Letters of Freedom Summer
By Ricardo Khan, Denise Nicholas and Sibusiso Mamba
Genesis Festival of New Plays – returns in February 2020 for staged readings of new works in the studio at the NBPAC – and highlights the work of Lisa B. Thompson, writer of popular Crossroads hit, Single Black Female in a special Genesis: Spotlight. Other works by Ricardo Khan and Pia Wilson. The Genesis Festival is a playwright laboratory experience that consists of three separate shows of stage readings for the audience to enjoy and critique.
Letters From Freedom Summer is a powerful, dramatic reminder of a time when young believers dared to venture across racial lines to gallantly and courageously face the threat of violence and even murder for the sake of a greater good. But also, for today’s America, it is a call for action.
