I’m Black. I Matter.

A young Black man from Brooklyn living in “post-racial America” hosts his own Homegoing service as a way for himself to prepare to die and to honor the memory of the unarmed Black Men and Women who have and are still being murdered by the police at a heartbreaking pace. This piece uses humor and heart to remove the mask of the perceived “superpredator” by weaving together original poetry and music to theatricalize and articulate the vulnerability of a young Black man at risk of becoming the next trending hashtag.
“Kareem M. Lucas continues to prove that he’s capable of doing it all: writing, performing, and directing.”—Playbill
