#SAYHERNAME: THE LIVES THAT SHOULD’VE BEEN
Staged Reading of an Original Play
Thursday March 28th, 7:30 PM
A staged reading performance, Say Her Name: The Lives That Should've Been imagines the lives that mothers, daughters, and sisters may have led had some lives not been cut short by police violence. Performers celebrate the beauty, complexity, and everyday normalcy of the victims’ lives. Based on interviews with family and friends of the victims of racist violence, this performance bears witness to and demands justice for Black women and girls.
