On July 22, 2018, Nia Wilson was stabbed to death in Oakland, California. The same BART platform where she bled led me to school most mornings. Many days wasted, I wondered, on countless curriculums hoping theater could somehow honor the black bodies hurried and buried away too abruptly. I felt an undying, heavy, and relentless responsibility as a Black Artist to tell these stories. Grateful to be making my A.R.T. debut with a piece of such importance. Ashè to Aleshea, the Creatives, and the Spirits in the margins for making this possible.
