Shades of Truth & Voza Rivers / New Heritage Theatre Group

TRUBONE: Trilogy of Truth
Saturday, November 9th

Williams Institutional CME Church



In a world that has never truly atoned for the sins of slavery, enters TRUBONE, a man of an indeterminate age…a gifted storyteller, profound and irreverent, he tells it like it is because it was what it was!

He takes you on a journey from the slave ship to the auction block, from the sun-drenched cotton fields of the Deep South to the bloody battlefields of the Civil War and World War I.

Are these the rantings of a delusional old man? Or the inspired recollections of a man preserved by time to rewrite history without pause or apology!
