    A group of actors gather to tell the little-known story of the first genocide of the 20th century. The play descends from collaborative to absurd as a group of idealistic actors attempt to recreate the extinction of the Herero tribe at the hands of their German colonizers. Eventually the full force of a horrific past crashes into the good intentions of the present, and what seemed a faraway place and time comes all too close to home. Learn More

The ramifications of this act are still being felt today. As retold for the first time within a creative, nonfictional genre by Emmett’s mother, Mamie Till-Mobley, the play chronicles this tragedy, its aftermath, and Mamie’s heroic crusade for justice.
