In Pursuit Of Justice
Wabi Sabi Productions presents In Pursuit Of Justice / Red Rose, a double bill of one-woman shows at the Payan Theatre from the 23 Mar - 2 Apr 2006.
In Pursuit Of Justice / Red Rose:
In Pursuit Of Justice: This play explores the life and trials of an African-American journalist, who was an active crusader against lynching and a champion of social and political justice for African Americans. Wells actively participated in efforts to gain the vote for women and simultaneously campaigned against racial bigotry within the women's movement. She was a founder of the NAACP although her association with the organization was not always peaceful.
Red Rose: The story of Rosa Luxemberg, the German revolutionary leader, journalist, and socialist theorist, who was killed in Berlin in 1919 during the German revolution. Rosa saw herself as a citizen of the proletariat. Born as a Russian-Jew she became a German citizen through marriage.
In Pursuit Of Justice stars Janice Jenkins.
Red Rose is direced by Emmitt Thrower.
