On today’s podcast, James Jackson dropped by the studio to talk about the Lynn Nottage compiled, “One More River To Cross”. Yes, another very timely production that speaks to the never-ending conversation of race, class and gentrification. Stay Tuned!
ABOUT ONE MORE RIVER TO CROSS
A World Premiere, by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage, One More River To Cross immerses you in song and culture as you experience lives of former slaves. Between 1936 and 1938, the Federal Writers Project gathered over 2,300 interviews with emancipated slaves in the post war South. Nottage has collected and condensed these interviews into a theatrical exploration of the entire history of black slavery in the United States from African capture through the emancipation. This new work, staged to reflect the deep historic connections between current theatre and primary cultures in Africa, resurrects the voices of people who, for many years, had none. One More River To Cross brings the words and stories of black American slaves firmly into the present and delivers a lyrical declaration of hope, reaching out from the past and giving strength to our future.
