DETAILS

An Intimate Drama About Who Tells the Story of America
In this riveting two-person drama, an ambitious young black student and her esteemed white professor meet to discuss their differing views on the college junior’s paper about slavery and the American Revolution.

A polite clash of ideas soon landslides into an explosive discussion of race, history, and power. Riddled with smart dialogue, this dramatic confrontation forces us to empathize with two vibrant and complicated women. It’s an entertaining and thought-provoking nail-biter that will have everyone talking.
