florissant & canfield
By Kristiana Rae Colón
Directed by Derrick Sanders
At the intersection of tear gas and teddy bear memorials, a loose alliance of neighbors in Ferguson, MO find themselves hurled into the national spotlight. Documenting the wild, messy birth of a civil rights renaissance in a digital age and the vanguard of the Black Lives Matter movement, Colón’s drama is timely, powerful and real.
Directed by Jeff Award winner and UIC theatre faculty member Derrick Sanders. Playwright Kristiana Rae Colón is a poet, playwright, actor, educator, Cave Canem Fellow and co-director of the #LetUsBreathe Collective.
