Intelligent, Profound, Thought-provoking

See it if you have never heard of Stokely Carmichael and the Black Power Movement. You will be awakened and MOVED.

Don't see it if you have no interest in the socio/political climate we are currently experiencing.

"Labrone portrays Carmichael and several other characters to illustrate the injustice of our fundamentally racist society; thanks to the beautiful work of director Jennifer Knight, each character is distinct, hallowing, and necessary...The play features moments that are 'squirm-in-your-seat' uncomfortable, balanced by moments of heartwarming beauty, all of which combine to create an experience that I will be thinking about for a long, long time to come."

"One can count it as a missed opportunity that a show with the title ‘Power! Stokely Carmichael’ tells us so little about the life of Stokely Carmichael…Labrone energetically captures Carmichael’s polemical flourishes…He is a technically adept performer…But, in a 70-minute play about Stokely Carmichael, shouldn’t there be less bubbly (fewer anonymous characters and extraneous entertainment) and more…Stokely Carmichael – the breadth and evolution of his thought, the details of his life?"
