Black Lives Don't Matter is a play that represents the collective view and feelings after the deaths of many black lives due to police brutality.  We made the creative call to our theater comrades to use the stage as we so often due to express the things that are deeply painful and difficult to express when emotions erupt.  Black Lives is a catharsis, a way for the African American community to cleanse itself of the hurt it was experiencing in politically and racially charged times.
