Kenyatta Shakur is alone. His wife has died, and this former Black Revolutionary and political prisoner is desperate to reconnect with his estranged daughter, Nina. If Kenyatta truly wants to reconcile his past, he must first conquer his most challenging revolution of all – fatherhood.
The play was selected with LCC’s year-long celebration of 400 Years of African-American History in mind. Morisseau, a playwright from Detroit, is a McArthur Genius Grant winner and author of multiple plays including the Detroit Projects cycle and Ain’t Too Proud, a musical about The Temptations currently running on Broadway.
This show is intended for mature audiences – adult language and themes.
Kenyatta (Ndegwa McCloud), Nina (Miah Nash), Damon (Trvyn Friar) with music vocals by Ny’Kieria Blocker.
