?The Bloodless Jungle? ??African American State Senator Ethan St. John is a rising political star who is running for a pivotal seat in Congress. In the midst of the campaign, his best friend from high school is accused of a serious crime. Faced with a daunting choice: does he abandon his friend, whom he believes may be innocent or risk jeopardizing the campaign by supporting him? The play is about choices and consequences.
?Before They Die?? The prosperous Greenwood community of Tulsa Oklahoma was reduced to burning cinders in less than 24 hours by a jealous, ruthless white mob.? Many participants had been dutifully deputized for the occasion. June 1, 1921 a day of utter infamy for both victims and survivors. The documentary captures the spirit of?Black self-sufficiency and the relentless pursuit of Justice.
