This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
Zooman and the Sign (Apr. 14 - May 7, 2006)

Written by Charles Fuller

Directed by Lou Bellamy

In the immediate aftermath of their daughter’s tragic murder, the Tate family is struggling to find her killer. What used to be a compassionate black community has been rendered powerless by recurring gang violence and police apathy. Reuben Tate’s pleas to his neighbors are met with icy refusals or indifference. Racked with a sense of helplessness, he posts a plea for humanity that rouses an emotionally ravaged neighborhood to its feet.
