A gripping hip hop musical of racial reconciliation

LOGLINE

Imagine a powerful black woman in the 21st century being thrust back into the 1800s as a slave with only one chance to escape back to her reality.

 

This is the story of LaShelle Robinson, a spit-fire Wall Street broker, who travels back in time to rescue her ancestor, Inka, from a lynching – all to lift the curse off her white fiancé, Todd, the love of her life.

WHY A 

HIP-HOP

MUSICAL

As a kid, I was pretty desperate to discover my roots and express my imagination – which I did through literature, hip-hop and musicals. I remember when my father took me to see Les Miserables on Broadway. I was enthralled! I knew immediately I wanted to create a musical of that caliber that dramatized the social issues of my people."
