Soul Of A Nation

Will & Company does theatre for social change. SOUL OF A NATION takes a look at the African-American journey to date. In a 65 minute, live, multi-media presentation, we dig deep into the role of black women in American society, the horror of the justice system for black men, the phobias entangled in Afro-textured locks, and the myth of everything being "all better now."

In 1967 Detroit, Motown music is getting the party started, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours joint. But when a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, the siblings clash over much more than the family business. As their pent up feelings erupt, so does their city, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the '67 riots.
