ABOUT THE PLAYThree generations of African-American New York Police Officers: 1)twenty-four year old Dece,disillusioned and confused in a contemporary world of drug violence and brutality, whosepresent-day struggles go beyond the routine paradox of being both black and a cop: He and his vaguely racist white partner become indicted in the death of a black female civilian. 2) Dece’s deceased parents- a practical, optimistic mother and a father frustrated by racism within the ranks of the force. 3) And Dece’s grandfather, a man whose experience has instilled within him the awareness that there is a way out of the carnage and distrust between the African-American and police communities. A jagged precarious journey whereby all gradually grasp that understanding comes, not just through seeing other but hearing.
