Zooman and the Sign

zooman_artIn the wake of the recent violent crimes in communities of color by youth in Chicago and the continued call for alarm among DC youth, hats off to the Howard University Theater Department for addressing the issues of crime and there effects on community in their production of Zooman and the Sign by Charles Fuller now playing at the Ira Aldridge Theater.

“Zooman” is a black teen in Philadelphia who senselessly terrorizes his community without regard to race. His most recent crime is the killing of a 12 year-old black girl on a street filled with witnesses all of whom are afraid to talk. The dead girl’s bereaved father posts a sign accusing the entire community of cowardice in the face of the ever escalating violence.
