Camp Logan exposes just one of the many deleted moments in American History.

Camp Logan tells the story of thirteen black soldiers from the 24th United States Infantry Regiment in 1917. The men of the 24th Infantry had fought bravely on behalf of the United States and received a distinguished record, having served in the Mexican-American dispute in Cuba and in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War.

Many of the men were 20-year veterans, yet less than five months after returning from service, 13 soldiers from the 24th were hanged without appeal or review under sentence by the largest court-martial ever convened in the United States.

Please join us for an evening of music and reflection and a new work in progress that builds on a composition by world-renowned trombonist Craig S. Harris. The presentation, featuring Harris and The Nation of Imagination, honors the history and evolution of Harlem over decades.

After serving eight years in prison, reformed gang leader S. Lance Ingram (Daniel Beaty) re-enters society and struggles to adapt to a changed Harlem. Living under the tough supervision of a parole officer in a halfway house, he is unable to find a job that will let him use the technological skills he gained in prison, and is forced to deal with racism, gang violence, and the gentrification of the historic New York City neighborhood in which he was raised.

Directed by Jamal Joseph, a leader of the Black Panther Party who spent time in prison as a result of his involvement in the organization, Chapter & Verse pulls you into its vibrant world and reflects upon what it means to forge your own destiny in an outwardly harsh society.
