Gaddy-Goodwin Teaching Theatre, 301 Pogue Street, Raleigh, NC 27607
Based on the true story of the Jena Six; six Black students who were initially charged with attempted murder for a school fight after being provoked with nooses hanging from a tree on campus. This bold ensemble drama examines the miscarriage of justice, racial double standards, the crisis in relations between men and women of all classes and, as a result, the shattering state of Black family life.
Blood at the Root employs strong language, racial slurs, and symbols of violence to accurately depict the story of the Jena Six. Parental discretion is advised.
$27 - $14
