Please join us for the first installment of the Ammo Reading Series done in conjunction with our friends at East West Players!
“Every 28 hours a black man is killed. How does a middle class black family keep their teenage son alive in a world like ours? Zakiyyah Alexander’s ‘How To Raise A Freeman’ presents a layered dramatic take on the fears and concerns of what it means to raise a black child in a climate that includes police brutality, gentrification, and the disconnect and hope of a younger burgeoning generation.”

ABOUT AMMUNITION THEATRE COMPANY:
Ammunition Theatre Company (or Ammo) was founded by a group of passionate artists and activists to reflect the diverse, evolving identity of America. These artists realized that although society had transformed, popular culture had not changed to illustrate that transformation – leaving many communities and their stories in the dark. By fostering original works & reimagined classics, Ammo’s mission is to celebrate these communities and their stories while inspiring the society we live in to do the same.
