“Don’t Call Me Brother” Stage Play S.C. premiere
Thursday, March 15 – 31, 2018, ‘Times May Vary’ at WOW Performing Art Center (PAC) 5816 Shakespeare Rd a, Columbia, SC 29223
In light of events occurring within the past several years, it seems that tragedy has struck the black community back-to-back in the form of police brutality, harassment, and hate crimes. Such tribulations are not foreign to Black Americans, however, the buildup of broken black bodies and false accusations has left them distressed and gasping for air in the congested minefield of civil injustice.
Cries for respect and human decency from police have exponentially evolved into a sonic boom for all the world to hear. One may wonder, where does the black police officer stand on these matters? Which side should they choose– the black or the blue side? Stuck in the cross-hairs of their blackness and profession, the double consciousness of the black police officer is examined in the award-winning play “Don’t Call Me Brother” which has its SC premiere at the WOW Performing Arts CenterMarch 15-31st. On Sunday, March 18th the show will include a post-show panel with Richland County Sherrif’s Department. Buy Tickets Now..
