Marking the time we are living in with poignant reflection, protest, and vision, Truthworker Theatre Company will perform excerpts from their provocative three-part body of work Truthworker: Boxed in & Blacked Out in America which depicts the prison industrial complex through the lens of a dozen youth directly impacted by mass incarceration. This trilogy, comprised of original hip-hop theatre productions, moves from the school-to-prison pipeline and youth criminalization, through the impacts and practices of solitary confinement, and into re-entry upon release.

Presented in collaboration with Hi-ARTS and the 2017 Hip Hop Theater Festival.

Please note this performance is suitable for ages 14 and up.
