This one-woman show follows a Chicago student's personal transformation through studying the Civil Rights Movement. Alaya uses her fists as an outlet for anger, but after interviewing local heroes of the Movement she discovers she can put “anger into action” and that her true power is in her voice and her hip hop. Weaving together real interviews, poetry, hip hop, history and multimedia projections, the performance features stories of both celebrated and unsung Chicago-based Civil Rights Activists.
