Talk: Every 28 Hours

Every 28 Hours” is a series of one-minute plays focused on the contested statistic that every twenty­-eight hours a black person is killed by law enforcement in America. Inspired by true stories and the Black Lives Matter movement, the plays expose the impact of racial violence. As part of a national movement, The Every 28 Hours Play was being done in theaters across the United States for a few days in 2016. FaultLine Theater’s Cast and Directors agreed to do it one more time, at Google.
