MAY 1ST "BLOOD MAKES THE RED RIVER FLOW" STAGED READING

I have secured a space and date for the staged reading of "Blood Makes The Red River Flow". All roles are already cast except for the role of Ferdinand Juan Carlos Montero. Auditions for that role will be held in late March. I am very excited about this play, which I dedicate to the Creoles of the Cane River who inspired this play, and the victims of Hurricane Katrina. I pray that none of those wonderful people that I interviewed for my documentary experienced that terrible tragedy, and that all are in good health.

This play shows the humanity of the people during those trying times of slavery in the Americas, and serves to educate regarding the unique heritage and diversity of African descendants in the Western Hemisphere.
