New play explores race/ethnicity

At Story Slam, a reading of Imani Harrington’s new play "Cut In The Blood/Ashes to Dust."

On Q Productions presents a reading of Imani Harrington’s "Cut In The Blood/Ashes to Dust" at Story Slam, 1401 Central Ave.

The new play by the San Francisco playwright unravels what it means to be black, Native American, Gullah/Geeche and Caucasian, which are all ingredients that clash against the grain of race and identity. One man crashes headlong into his past when he visits the plantation where his ancestors remained after they were freed.
