Pianist and friend Syd William invited me to see a “must experience” play in Berkeley, CA. COPS AND ROBBERS. The Muse is social! Art is life!!!
The play is an historic work of art that touches the reality and consequences of slavery. It speaks the truth of the time in which we dwell, as citizens and residents of the United States of America. It calls each of us to act and understand the essence of being human beings, in a world in which we exist to see, learn and love.
The power of the Muse drives the tides of social evolution through the turbulent and murky waters of racism. And, the play, itself, and the artists manifest not only the questions, but the answer for revolutionary social change.
I believe Cops and Robbers in nothing less than a historical milestone that will stand as the clarion call that redefines who and what we of African descent truly have been, are and will be in the history of humankind.
I highly recommend you experience it, as soon as you can.
