Keith A. Wallace's explosive solo performance draws on his youth in Philadelphia to examine the effects of racism, the question of excessive force used by police, and the value of Black lives in this country. 

In this Do Good Dialogue, join Wallace, campus law enforcement officials and members of the Nyumburu Center’s Black Male Initiative for a conversation about what it’s like to be black in America, coping with trauma and how to instill hope in young people living with unimaginable challenges.

Key contributors to this conversation are:

David Mitchell, Chief, University of Maryland Police
Aaron T. O'Neal, activist attorney and organizer of Black is Back Coalition
Yejide Orunmila, President of the African National Women's Organization
Keith A. Wallace, actor/playwright/activist
Gregory D. Yancey, Moderator, President of Waring Mitchell Law Society

Join us on Wednesday, September 27 and Thursday, September 28 for Keith A. Wallace's "The Bitter Game", accompanied by two post-performance discussions, "Know Your Rights" and "Baltimore and Beyond".
