Another Black man is shot by a white police officer, and we ask what comes next? How do we heal? How do we protect our children? How do we survive this state, this country, this world?

A GATHERING OF SONS takes us on a journey through the lives of a young Black man, a white police officer, a pair of Black parents, and a collection of spirits who watch over the world. The words express an experience of both loss and gain, and an understanding of the beautiful life flowing within all of us. It is a confrontation with history, and the way it breathes through the present. It is a conversation on our biases, and how we heal after tragedy. It is an eye towards freedom, and the work we need to reach it. It is full of magic. It is full of fear. It is full of hope, of pain, and still, an even more powerful love.
