Gunshot Medley is a new play that addresses black lives in the US. Playwright Dionna Michelle Daniel weaves together generations of stories through poetry and song to respond to the insensitive usage of the Confederate flag after the Charleston church massacre. In her play, the souls of three slaves are stuck in a state of limbo, perpetually tasked with cleaning the wreckage caused by systemic racism purveying contemporary America. The trio must confront the expendability of African American lives through the ages: Antebellum South, the Civil Rights Movement, #BlackLivesMatter. It is a play about the human spirit’s perseverance.
