New Black Fests Hands Up:

7 Playwrights, 7 Testaments

Hands Up is a powerful set of monologues commissioned by The New Black Fest in the wake of police shootings of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and John Crawford III in Beavercreek, Ohio, and others.

Seven black playwrights were commissioned to write monologues that explore their feelings about the well-being of black people in a culture of institutional profiling.
