You can't understand a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. But who among us has tasted the paranoia, dread, and loss from gun violence that is, shockingly, so common among urban high schoolers and their families? For 'Death of a Black Man (A Walk By),' audiences move through a variety of uniquely designed environments suggesting the events before and after a shooting in a city playground.
