This Land Was MadeReturn

Playwright Tori Sampson Producer Ubuntu Theater Project  [Website] Description Oakland, 1967. In Miss Trish's bar, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes and The Chambers Brothers play while local 20-somethings work, study, fight, fall in love and dream of a different world. On the streets, the Black Panther Party is organizing armed patrols against police brutality. John Frey, an on-duty officer, will soon be shot and killed. Huey Newton, the co-founder of the Black Panthers, will be charged and stand trial for his murder.

Tori Sampson's electric new drama brings the African American community of 1960s Oakland richly to life, offering a provocative look at the events that made Huey P. Newton an American household name.
