Foreward by Louis Reyes Rivera.
"Requiem for George Jackson is astounding. An African motif in an American setting sets the pace for this musical drama that reads as easily as a novel, while offering a balanced blend of history, drama, irony, and Yoruba-influenced rituals. Underneath these elements of excellent theatre is a biting critique of the Black Liberation Movement of the 1960s, and a standing tribute to ones of its most impactive theoreticians, George L. Jackson. This Requiem will make you laugh, cry, think and remember!"
