This powerful new play starring Sylvester Williams (Eastenders, Bullet Boy, The Posse, The Amen Corner) takes audiences on a 174 year roller coaster of a multi-media journey through imperialism, segregation, the Civil Rights movement, the "Windrush" era and the black consciousness movement, telling the true stories of great accomplishments in the face of adversity. It features a host of greats including Ira Aldridge, Walter Tull, Paul Robeson and President Barack Obama.
