The figure has been called into question, but the notion that “every 28 hours” a black person is killed by police in America has caught hold in many imaginations. It’s an idea that has sparked a theatrical movement with companies across the country performing one-minute plays inspired by the Black Lives Matter Movement. We talk with the director of City@Peace, a program at Atlas Performing Arts Center, about the work they do with teens in the community and the conversations that “Every28Hours” is sparking among them and with program alumni.

Guests

  • Sandra Holloway Artistic Director and Facilitator, City at Peace at the Atlas Performing Arts Center
