Blood at the Root
By Dominique Morisseau
Directed by Anedra Small
Raylynn, a young Black high school senior, finally wants to make her mark in her integrated school—even if she has to break some rules to do it. Drawing inspiration from the racially divisive case of the Jena Six in Louisiana, Morisseau’s highly charged drama challenges racial inequity and champions the demand for social justice.
